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! from GLAM LIVE on Vimeo.

Ambra Salon came in 3rd place in the fierce competition!!
(quite respectable since this was the first year the salon competed).
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.
