Alister Lockhart was born in Scotland before being moved to Australia, presumably because the other side of the planet was deemed the best choice for his relocation. After insisting against all sensible advice that he wanted to be an illustrator, he trained in Graphic Design at the University of Newcastle and promptly got a job drawing dragon's n' spaceships for Sydney-based games company Strategic Studies Group (SSG), with whom he still works today. In the interim, he's been a farm-hand, a chicken-stuffer, a dish-washer, a copy-fitter, a signwriter, a rose-salesman, a data-entry technician, a teacher, a truck-builder, a bartender, a life-model, a singer, a stand-up comedian, a set-designer, a guitarist, a concept artist, a script-editor, an animator, a 3D modeller, a game designer, a voice actor, an art director, a writer, a film director, a lecturer, and on one memorable occasion mediated a dispute between a group of rowdy drunks and an angry scout-troop leader. Long story.|
He's married to a lovely girl called Sandra and lives in Sydney with her and their boys Lucas (8) and Robbie (6). He has an weekly online radio show called 'MovieGroove', it's too late to change the name but you should totally check it out between 7-9 pm thursday (Sydney Time) on Energy Groove Radio. He enjoys cycling, fixing his stupid house, and referring to himself in the third person. He is looking forward to the new Star Wars movie more than he will admit, unless you're reading this after Christmas 2015 in which case- Hey, wasn't Episode 7 awesome/shithouse?
