Clive carves the “Hollowgast” creature from Tim Burton’s upcoming movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, from a watermelon. And they said it couldn’t be done!
Seems there are a few Alligator Watermelon Carvings showing up on the web suddenly, but Clive’s was the first and I still think the best (though there are some good ones, I must admit). This was featured last year in Ripley’s Eye-Popping Oddities book. Make sure you share this one, it deserves to go viral! Best Watermelon Carving – ever!
This African Lion Pumpkin Carving might just be Clive’s best sculpture to date. Hard to see the scale here, but this must be at least an 80lb atlantic giant pumpkin he’s used. Unfortunately, this lion met his demise. Nope, not in the Arena, but rather deteriorated overnight in our kitchen! It’s uber cool!
Clive has been carving an array of pumpkins for a very special client, soon to be revealed! Check out the cute little Panda Pumpkin Carving. You might even catch these little guys on Global TV late show between Oct 26th to 30th. Will keep you posted!
Also his adorable Lion Cub Pumpkin Carving.
Here is Clive’s final watermelon sculpture of the season – a killer Iguana Watermelon. Cute huh? “Iguana piece of that”!!

Clive’s famous Alligator watermelon carving has made it into Ripley’s Eye Popping Oddities book – coming out soon (if not already). Nice 2 page spread in the book and a third page showing the stages in carving this one. I’m sure will join us in congratulating Clive!
How’d he do it? Check out our Youtube Channel: Alligator Watermelon Carving
Thought Clive looked so good on Global BC TV’s 6:00 news on July 27th, 2014. I’m glad we filmed it in the garden, as looked so nice. It all started with his “Viral Alligator Watermelon Carving” and now will see if we have a “Viral Video” from his “Triceratops Watermelon Carving” on our hands!
In case you missed it, here’s the link:

Well, we’ve just started a Youtube Channel to feature Clive’s carvings – called Clive Cooper Carvings, naturally. Let’s see if his video goes viral like the image did!
Special thanks to our dear friend Domenico Cutrupi!

The Alligator Watermelon Carving trend, continues to grow. We are receiving many hits today from Voice.fi (Voice Finland) and from the article featured in The Province newpaper (Sunday, June 15, 2014)! Article was very well written, by reporter Sam Cooper (not related).
Also, we were advised by a relation in England, that last week Clive’s carvings were featured in The Sunday Times. Not sure if it was in their online edition or not – if you find it, please send me the link.
What constitutes going “viral” on the web exactly? I don’t know, but I’ve found websites with 500,000 views, Trend Hunting sites including our images, Facebook pages with 15,000 plus “likes” 42 Google web pages (at least, and growing) featuring Clive’s recent Alligator Watermelon Carving (or as some prefer, Crocodile Watermelon Carving). With online newspapers using this image, the Food Network about to publish a blog, Wenn News Agency, Rock 101, Lite FM, VR-Zone on Facebook, the list goes on and on …
It is a great carving, but then Clive has loads of fantastic, extreme watermelon and pumpkin carvings to be proud of. Click on the alligator picture below to see even more!
