Typically we wrestle to seek out inspiration – we wander round and search for one thing to interrupt our artistic block. However that most likely doesn’t occur to artist and software program engineer Eric Geusz. He makes use of widespread home goods as an inspiration to create wonderful spaceship designs.
Software engineer & artist Eric Geusz’s work is proof that inspiration is everywhere around us. For quite some time now, Eric has been transforming common household objects into spectacular spaceship designs, and they’re completely out of this world. From a can opener to a game controller, everything can be a rocket in Eric’s mind.
“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.
Eric encourages everyone to daydream more. “Spaceships are like dragons,” he said. “You are free to make them look however you want but how they make you feel is the most important.”
“Trying to come up with an original yet familiar design is definitely the hardest part,” Eric added. “There are so many good designs out there to pull inspiration from but I also try to find something unique. I make many sketches, sometimes starting completely over before I settle on something good.”
