'An Object of Desire' Good Weekend SMH / Age
Seven years ago, Lynn set out to buy her husband Jamie (a fanatical Hawthorn supporter) a birthday present. She tried to find a piece of Hawthorn memorabilia that didn’t completely disconnect with her sense of style. After a painstaking search, she came up empty handed.
So, she decided to design her own homage to the great team. Looking at the trend for tram scrolls, she redesigned the traveler's journey to the fan's journey, asking die hard Hawks supporter what the key destinations, dates, scores and names were in their life long journey as a fan.
The end result was a piece of contemporary art that discreetly smuggled in the sporting passion.
Getting noticed. From a one off design, screen printed by hand at a local screen printers, friends urged the pair to create other boards for different clubs and different sports. Good Weekend (SMH/The Age) took notice and named the prints an ‘Object of Desire’.
Hard To Find and Fairfax's The Store were also keen to stock the range.
