Hello all,
In case some of you aren't familiar with me or my work, my name is David Rabbitte (which is actually pronounced like rabbit - I know, it confuses everyone) and I have worked on a number of Star Wars sketch card sets for Topps. Those are Star Wars Heritage, Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars 30th Anniversary, Clone Wars 2008, and Star Wars Galaxy. I have also done sketch cards for Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings, as well as doing an exclusive print for Celebration 4.
Some of my other work includes working in the animation industry as a background artist for companies such as 20th Century Fox (Anastasia, Titan A.E.), Warner Bros (Fat Albert) and Universal (digitally painted backgrounds for Curious George)
I have also painted the occasional book cover/pinup for comics and a few novels.

Without further ado, I wanted to post some of my work here. Hope you enjoy it.

Well, I'm collecting sketch cards of C-3PO from many different artists and it occurred to me that I don't have a concept version. Do you take commissions?

Re: Art from David Rabbitte

I'm getting through a list of commissions right now but I can take on a few more. I have personal sketch card stock if you would like me to do it on that.

That is the full size image actually...you can see the fourth arm behind his other one, I guess I thought it would work fine showing three arms.

Brilliant sketch cards David.
Your colors almost have an ethereal quality to them.

Re: Art from David Rabbitte

Hey guys,
Here's a piece I finished recently. This was done in pen and ink, then colored digitally. A bit of a departure from my usual style, but I love the animated short from the Star Wars Holiday Special and just had to do this! I submitted this to ACME not too long ago but unfortunately my timing wasn't too great - little did I know they were about to release a very similar print done by an artist who worked on the cartoon!
I'm sure you know which print I mean.
Still, it was fun to do. Enjoy.
