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.

    That’s clever, but the images themselves are unflattering. To see how composition is suppose* to be done, see original.

    The Firefly’s landing gear shouldn’t be lit like that. It should be more in shadow, like the Millennium Falcon’s.
