Rob Hassan is a freelance artist based in the Chicago area.
His studio offers an eclectic mix and variety of art styles. In tribute to his myriad graphic skills, he likes to use the handle GraphixRob.
For all practical purposes, Rob is a self-taught artist. He has attended several traditional drawing and painting courses over the years, with the pinnacle being at the School of Visual Arts (NYC). Rob has found that independent study is by far the most beneficial for him. He feels keeping on top of the latest art, artists and techniques via the internet is the best way to stay creative and fresh. Most recently he has focused on his computer graphics art education and has incorporated several 2D and 3D software programs into his traditional workflow.
Rob's artistic experience includes but, is not limited to character design, storyboards, virtual product prototype design, concept artwork, portrait art, DVD and comic book cover art.
Rob draws inspiration from many sources, including various traditional and CG artists, modern fantasy painters, science fiction and superhero movies, classic Universal monsters, contemporary art, comic art and graphic novels.
Many of Rob's original Science Fiction, Comic Art and Fantasy creations are held in personal collections both Domestically and Internationally. His artwork has also been presented as a line of exclusive poster prints, etched into glass art, used on websites, featured on book covers, in comics and magazines and used on DVD covers.
His artwork has been displayed in several Chicago area art galleries and has received art awards and honors in Chicago IL., Hollywood Ca., London England, Brisbane Australia, and Trieste Italy.
