Hawthorn Hawks – Lance Franklin “The Phenomenon” Jamie Cooper Print
It is players like Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin that bring people to our great game, whether they be Hawk fans or not. Once in a generation they come along, with freakish skills and the ability to make the impossible seem all too easy. But it is Franklin’s ability to engage the spectator with his brilliance and to carry the hopes and dreams of an entire club on his broad shoulders that makes him, the People’s Player.
Here, in this dynamic portrait, renowned AFL artist Jamie Cooper has depicted Lance in mid celebration as the crowd cheer him on. He has just bombed another 50 metre goal from the boundary and the Hawk family rise as one. In fact many of the Franklin family are in this crowd scene. His father Lance Snr, his three sisters and even a young 8 year old Lance at far left looks on in wonder at what is to be. This high quality lithographic is taken from the original oil painting and faithfully reproduced on 300 gsm acid free, archival art stock.
