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

     July 18, 2013

Lemon Millennium Falcon Justin Van Genderen slice

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.
