The futuristic ship was designed by Ian McQue for his book Chroma: A Book of Speedpaints. The Robot was designed by Ruslan Safarov as part of his Amusing Robots series.

Since 2008, Pixar has invited a few promising undergraduate technical artists to intern at Pixar as part of the Pixar Technical Undergraduate Program, otherwise known as "PUP," where they spend the summer learning Pixar's pipeline from people working in production, getting to know both the tools and philosophies Pixar uses to make animated feature films.
For those interested in joining the program, please visit the Pixar website and if you want to learn a little more about what it's like to be a PUP, check out this fun article on 2017 PUPs.
