Robert Ross of RedRossGallery.com had some creative art pieces at his booth at the Harlem Week street fair. He had this cool painting of a girl but instead of painting in her hair he used actual hair and added it to the piece. It really gave it a cool 3d aspect to the illustration. Unfortunately for me, by time I got back to interview Robert he already sold the piece.
Below is one of Roberts Afros pieces, you can see more here
