Classic art paintings receive a sci-fi pop culture makeover with this American Gothic and Star Wars mash-up T-shirt by Etsy shop owner 'Missionthread.' The result is an intergalactic traditional painting updated for the 21st century.

Famous painter Grand Wood created his mark in the art world with his world-renown portrait of a farmer and his wife called American Gothic. Etsy designer 'Missionthread' re-vamped the infamous American Gothic painting by rendering the image grayscale and replacing the faces with Star Wars Stormtrooper masks. The sci-fi image is printed in a pixelated style on a super comfy, black American Apparel T-shirt. Fans of the Star Wars saga will love this shirt for its dual pop culture reference.

This geeky modernization of American Gothic makes you wonder if in the future, will everyone be a droid?
