Canadian artist David Vancook has inserted "Star Wars" characters into second-hand paintings, and the results are out of this world.

The series "started as sort of a joke," he said. "I love old thrift store art and I grew up watching 'Star Wars,' so in my nerdy little mind the combination made sense," he told The Huffington Post.

In some of Vancook's works below, Darth Vader stands on a coastal terrace, a Stormtrooper chills at a sidewalk cafe and an AT-AT hikes below mountains. You can check out more at Vancook's Facebook page.

Could a portrait of Jabba the Hutt at the table with poker-playing dogs be far behind?
