Spent a lovely day with Miguel and John from Global BC TV. Super nice guys. Clive had a prepared a Triceratops watermelon carving for their interview. Here’s the final result! We are also preparing a “How To” video on our Youtube Channel. Just type in Clive Cooper Carvings when in Youtube and you’ll see it soon!
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!
You can view the alligator watermelon carving video and more videos in the future at this 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!

Interest in Clive’s recent Alligator watermelon carving is growing like wildfire on the web I see. Check out more of his images under the watermelon and pumpkin sections of the site.

Wow, Clive has certainly received more accolades and web hits for his watermelon carving of an alligator, than just about anything else he’s ever sculpted!
The Food Network will be featuring his designs on their website shortly, so keep an eye out for that: www.foodnetwork.ca
Also, Wenn News agencies contacted us today about running a feature. WENN provides new and traditional media worldwide with celebrity news and photos, representing numerous: newspapers, magazines, websites, blogs, book publishers, tv companies and many others – in over 35 countries. Their subscribers and clients include some of the worlds biggest media names including: the BBC, Bloomberg, Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL, HBO and thousands more newspapers, magazines, TV, websites etc…. so that’s pretty exciting.
June 4, Rock 101FM has listed it on their website, and websites and bloggers world-wide it seems. This one might just go viral!
He also recently carved the funny little character below, kind of a Google eyed froggie character I guess? What do you think?

Clive also was featured on the Weather Network several times on October 30th and 31st. Oga Nwobosi of the Weather Network had called us and send Camera man, Caaleb Trott to our house to film the segment.
Clive carves a “Demon Pumpkin” on October 16th. Love the horns and ears! On the 18th, Dickson Tong, a reporter from the Ming Pao Daily News interviewed Clive – so you’ll see an article and some of his carvings in their paper on October 21st. It will be a full page spread.

“Breakfast TV Spot featuring Clive Carving a Pumpkin”
If you missed the telly this morning, City TV will have the video online shortly:
City TV (Breakfast Television) is arriving next week to film Clive in action! You’ll see from our website that he’s already been bashing out a few pumpkins this season! Here’s one that I personally love, “The Executioner” carved from about a 50lb Atlantic Giant Pumpkin. Awesome.
