The Echo’s front cover last week went down somewhat better than the election results for many and we’ve had plenty of questions about the artist who was game enough to take on the climate denialist government.
The Scottish born Alister Lockhart while having plied himself to various trades from truck driver, builder and rose salesman to mediating between a group of rowdy drunks and an angry scout-troop leader he eventually went against all sensible advice and trained in graphic design. He now teaches illustration and design in Sydney, and also has a weekly radio show about movies on energy-groove.com that he happily claims no-one listens to.
He and his partner Kate have four boys to contend with and realised early that the escape of cycling and swimming not only meant that they could wear the kids out they could also enjoy a bit of a break at the same time
