With Scoop's audience being a discerning and rather affluent group of people the Scoop team have long thought that our website would be an ideal place to market quality New Zealand artist's prints.

In 2014 I had the wonderful experience of getting to know a remarkable artist whose work I decided I would love to conduct a sales experiment with. Though circumstances intervened and our 2014 attempts at marketing William Carden-Horton's remarkable drawings came to nought - William very kindly agreed to assist with our PledgeMe campaign to launch the Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism.

William Carden-Horton (Click to view his Instagram page) has been described as a visual journalist who "holds his pen loosely" recording New Zealand's awesome landscape.

His distinctive line drawn images capture the beauty of New Zealand landscape themes wonderfully and contain a sense of movement and freshness which is instantly recognizable by those familiar with our mountains, rivers and native fauna..

William has very kindly offered to donate the use of several of his most popular images to the cause of the launch of the Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism.

William was Icebreaker's seasonal-artist-in-nature in 2014 and his work features on some of the latest Icebreaker's iconic and quite marvelous clothing range. His work has also featured on a number of poetry books including the Makaro Press - Hoopla series.

Purchasers of these rewards will be contacted by Scoop following the PledgeMe campaign to choose which images they would like to have printed on their exclusive art-t-shirts or certificates. Mockups of the images will be available as rewards follow. So far around 20 pledgers to the scoop campaign have already chosen these rewards.

Gordon Campbell: On Betraying The Kurds

The Americans have now callously thrown the Kurds under the bus and created the ideal conditions for Islamic State to mount a comeback – all done so that Donald Trump can brag on the 2020 campaign trail that he brought the US troops home. How is the current fighting likely to proceed? More>>


Expert Comment: Online Voting Won’t Mean More Engagement

Gordon Campbell: On The Saudi Oil Refinery Crisis

So the US and the Saudis claim to have credible evidence that those Weapons of Oil Destruction came from Iran, their current bogey now that Saddam Hussein is no longer available. Evidently, the world has learned nothing from the invasion of Iraq in 2003 when dodgy US intel was wheeled out to justify the invasion of Iraq, thereby giving birth to ISIS and causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.
