Spoke Art’s Justin Van Genderen Prints Recreate Volkswagen “Lemon” Ad with Millennium Falcon and Firefly

While the pristine USS Enterprise is a sight to behold, artist Justin Van Genderen understands the appeal of a spaceship that shows its wear.  He recreated Volkswagen’s classic “Lemon” print advertisement for the Millennium Falcon and the Firefly—with a slight twist.  Volkswagen’s slogan was focused on quality control: “We pluck the lemons; you get the plums.”  Van Genderen embraces the imperfect: “You keep the plums, we’ll pick the lemons.”

Hit the jump to see both prints and find out how to buy.

The “Lemon – Firefly” and “Lemon – Millennium Falcon” prints go on sale at Spoke Art’s online store Friday July 19th at 3pm PST.  Check them out below.
