Watermelon Carving

Wow, this has sure been a wild ride.  Clive has had his watermelons features world-wide on TV, magazines, Facebook, Twitter, you name it.  The Alligator was the big hit.  Plus we started a Youtube channel entitled “Clive Cooper Carvings” and Ripley’s Believe it or not are featuring in their book in the coming year.

Clive had a flex day recently, so for fun carved this cute little Frankenstein character, who we’ve affectionately names “Frankenmelon”.  More to come …
