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.

The certificates l present the same images black on white as limited edition, numbered and signed fine art prints on archival paper at A4 size.. The Scoop Foundation will certify each print as a bona-fide Scoop Foundation founding certificate with its common seal and the signatures of the trustees.

On the reverse of each T-Shirts we plan to print the Scoop Koru logo as displayed above.

These will in short be exclusive and almost unique works of art.

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 The Harry/Meghan Affair, And Iran

Those “Meghzit” headlines seem apt, given how closely Britain’s January 31 exit from the European Union resembles the imminent departure from the Royal Family’s top team of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Gordon Campbell: On The Iran Aftermath

So, evidently, you can get away with murder. It looks as though a further escalation in the ongoing war between Iran and the US has been avoided – mainly thanks to Iran NOT responding in kind to the recklessly unhinged behaviour by the United States. Given the massive outpouring of public grief in Iran over the murder of Qassem Soleimani, some reciprocal action by Iran was necessary, but (so far) it has been almost entirely symbolic in nature...
