zakka book store

A few weeks back while attending the New York Photo Festival we stumbled across Zakkaa curious book store with a phenomenal collection of design publications. We entered the store with the intention of staying for a few minutes, but we ended up being there for more than an hour.

Zakka defines themselves as a book store and artist space. With their focus squarely on design, a careful curation guides you through select magazines, inspiring books on topics like photography and architecture, and other unique collectibles. Their branch office is located in Japan, and as part of their mission they highlight the latest in Japanese subculture. Next time you visit Dumbo, Brooklyn, be sure to stop by.

Hair Wars
GraphixRob Studios teamed up with AMBRA Salon on March 15, 2009 to compete in a WILD competition of hair and fashion...

The Supreme Salon Tour showcased the talent of local Salons competing to become the Supreme Salon at the finals held in Las Vegas, NV.

The judges for the competition at Chicago's REDNOFIVE were Stephen Rosengard from BRAVO’s Project Runway, famed photographer David Anthony and Blanca Delgado from America’s Beauty Show. The judges chose the three most creative and talented salons. The three winners received a cash prize and the opportunity to advance to the national competition in Las Vegas to win the coveted title.

The gorgeous Ambra models were dressed in fantastic costumes and artistically decorated with face and body paint to achieve a 'Jungle Woman' appearence...

Below are a few of the models that were body painted by GraphixRob!
(It was a tough job, but someone had to do it..)


Prepare to be blown away by this highlight clip of the Fantastic Groundbreaking Fashion/Hair Show of the Future...Hair Wars!

Ambra Salon came in 3rd place in the fierce competition!!

What a great time, we can't wait until next year!

CGW (Computer Graphics World)
The Magazine Website promoted GraphixRob's artwork and bio (below) for the entire months of March and April

For all practical purposes, Rob Hassan is a self-taught artist. He has attended many traditional drawing and painting classes over the years, with the pinnacle being at the School of Visual Arts (NYC). He often attends classes to learn some of the newer programs and more advanced 3D techniques. Rob is also a member of AUGI Autodesk Users Group (the makers of 3ds Max) where the members meet monthly to socialize, demonstrate new cg techniques, and review the latest 3D software advances.
His CG artwork has been displayed in Chicago’s “Echo Gallery” and has received art awards in Hollywood, California, and Brisbane, Australia, and Trieste, Italy.

Rob is a freelance 2D and 3D artist currently seeking a steady position within the video game or comic book industry. He offers an eclectic mix and variety of art styles. For the past 9 years, he has focused on CG art utilizing several 2D and 3D software programs including: 3ds Max, Vue, Groboto, Poser, Daz 3D, and Adobe Photoshop. "The end product is usually a mix of a few of these programs" he says. Rob is constantly upgrading his workstation; currently he works on a HP dual core machine with 4GB of RAM and vray or mental ray render engines.

Rob’s inspiration is drawn from many sources, including various CG artists, classic fantasy painters, science fiction movies, classic Universal monsters, contemporary art, and comic book art.

GraphixRob Studios ~ Feb 2009

Happy 2009!


is a new graphic image e-commerce site that accepted several of my images.
The image 'Visit to Twin Mountain' was submitted and it won the grand prize in their first website contest.

They wrote some very nice words about the artwork:

We are happy to announce you are the winner of our Holiday Contest for your entry “ Twin Mountain Visitors”!

The jury’s verdict:

Even though this image is available for download in a small size only and there were 3D images with a more refined postwork finish, our jury absolutely favoured this one!

What made this image stand out, is the remarkable fantasy landscape composition. The beautiful surreal scenery of a city carried by two statue guardians with the contrast adding to the depth of the image.

Much thanks to Astrid and the folks at eyelikeimages.com for the recognition and the generous prize...visit the site soon and check out all of the exceptional art.
