Artist Reimagines Everyday Objects as Spectacular Spaceship Designs

Spaceship Designs by Digital Artist Eric Geusz

As children, many of us would have played with inanimate objects and integrated them into our fantasy adventures—perhaps a TV remote became a rocket, or a shoe was a steamboat. One artist who is keeping childhood imagination alive is San Francisco-based digital artist Eric Geusz, who turns everyday objects into spectacular spaceship designs. “I have always had a huge passion for drawing and designing things since my childhood days of glitter glue and Legos,” says Geusz.

Software engineer by day and digital artist by night, Geusz works around the clock to produce his impressive artwork. From a Potato Spaceship inspired by the shape of a potato peeler, to a Tong Crane Ship inspired by—you guessed it—a pair of kitchen tongs, the artist’s work is not only incredibly imaginative, but bursting with detail. In one artwork designed for the 2016 ILM competition, Geusz used a regular can opener as inspiration for a futuristic spaceship, complete with colossal engines and a detachable cruiser ship.

The competition—run by Industrial Light & Magic, Wacom, and ArtStation—gave designers the opportunity to experience working as concept artists through a series of challenges including creating new vehicles, characters, and epic battles for the world of Star Wars.
