Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) is still many months away, but that small detail shouldn't keep you from checking out John Karpinsky's Star Wars Day of the Dead drawings. Karpinsky has given several of Star Wars' most iconic characters a Day of the Dead-inspired makeover, complete with floral patterns and skeletal facial features.

Karpinsky's Star Wars Day of the Dead drawings are done in two groups: imperial and rebel. The imperial side features Darth Vader, Boba Fett and a stormtrooper. The rebel side is droid-heavy, with R2-D2 and C-3PO joining Princess Leia. Although I do fear the consequences of disrespecting Darth Vader and Boba Fett, I am going to have to give the nod to the rebels in terms of overall awesomeness. Seeing a flowery, skull-faced Princess Leia will change your life.
