C. Alister Lockhart
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
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 lives in Sydney his boys Lucas (9) and Robbie (7). He enjoys cycling, fixing his stupid house, and referring to himself in the third person. He just bought a new stick welder and may well be moving into the garage to spend more time with it.
My first journal entry in more than a year.

If you've been following my posts then you have the patience of water. You should see my twitter feed. One year in and maybe six or seven posts. Excelsior!

Anyhow, in the time we last spoke I've released a short film called


named for an expansive Australian desert, wherein the film is set. Be sure to spell it correctly- it sounds like an Aboriginal word, but it's actually Latin- null (none) arbor (trees). See what they did there?

It's screened at more than a hundred festivals worldwide, and taken 16 international awards, including the Grand Prix at the UK's Bradford Animation Festival, and the 2012 AACTA Award (the Aussie Oscar- the Ozcar, if you will) for Best Animated Short. It's also screened throughout the US and Canada with the 2011 Oscar-nominated short animations. Objectively, all definitive proof that I am awesome. Glad you agree. There are reviews, but you don't need to see those. Awards. So there.

So it's available on iTunes. If you love me like you say you do, then you'll buy it. That's not just emotional blackmail, it's fact. Is too.

Also, moved to Sydney. If you live here, maybe I'll see you around.
