I’ve been working on this over the last few weeks, and I’m pretty excited about it as it is a bit of a departure from my usual art. It is to be used as a book cover for an upcoming independent novel to be sold as an e-book. Had a lot of fun doing it and it gave me more practice painting in Photoshop! I will post a pic of it with the titles and details on the author soon. More details when it becomes available for purchase!
Hey everyone, here’s an update – Titan Publishing offered me another assignment to illustrate for the Star Wars Insider. This story, written by Alexander Freed, is titled ‘The Last Battle of Colonel Jace Malcom’, set in the Old Republic era.
I was given an assignment by the nice folks at Titan Publishing to illustrate their short fiction for the Star Wars Insider Magazine. I am so grateful to be given this opportunity as I had been trying to get this for several years. I did three illustrations for a story based around Myri Antilles, Wedge Antilles’ daughter who is working as an undercover spy. The story was written by Karen Miller.
This was published in the August/Spetember issue of Star Wars Insider, U.S. Issue 135.

I will be accepting on site commissions, including 8×11 head sketches and full character art, also sketch card commissions! There will be prints available, including some never offered before.

I just added this to my Star Wars art gallery. This is the base card I illustrated for Topps Star Wars Galaxy Series 7 trading card set.
I thought if there would ever be a sequel to the Star Wars movies I’d love to see Luke go up against two Rancors. How the heck would he get out of this one? I was also thinking of The Lost World scene with 2 T-rex’s when I painted this.
Topps Star Wars Galaxy 7 is out now.
I was recently interviewed by Animation Career Review on my work as a freelance artist. You can check out the article here! http://www.animationcareerreview.com/articles/animator-david-rabbitte-shares-his-experience-how-become-successful-freelancer
I was recently commissioned to do this Blade Runner art. I love Blade Runner, and have done barely any kind of art based on it, so this was a fun one to do!
