Breakfast Television, CityTV – Pumpkin Carving

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.

Clive joins Caters News Agency

Seems like Clive's watermelons really are a huge hit!  He just signed on with Caters News Agency in the UK June 27th and already his carvings featured in the many online papers and magazines listed below (at least that I could find, might be more).  Some were actually published in print (i.e. Metro News UK).

I think that the people at Incredible things, Cheezburger, Go Carving and Deviant Art  and Nerdcore also deserve a little recognition and praise for recognizing his carvings and spreading the word! And you'll even find lots of Clive's pics on Pinterest!

Sharon continues her watercolour attempts.  This is of Greek Caryatids (columns).  Practice makes perfect! From an Istock photo I really liked.

This is Sharon's watercolour of an exquisite ivory and bronze bust by Charles van der Stappen c. 1897 entitled "The Mysterious Sphinx". Coolest sculpture ever (except for the ivory part of course).

Sharon Attempts a Watercolour

It's been years since I've done any "real" art, since digital graphics has been my job.  Thought I'd like to have a go at a watercolour.  Let me know what you think.

Watermelon and Pumpkin Carvings

Let's do a quick recap of Clive's carving in the past year or so since we started the site - he's been on Global BC TV demonstrating his carving skills, at the Food & Sustenance Fair and carved with the big guys at Metrotown's Monster Pumpkin show, to name a few of my fave moments.  To keep his name out there on the web, seems we have to do a lot of this blah, blahing, so forgive us if we've repeated ourselves a blog or two.  Anyway, hope you enjoy the site! Here's Clive newest extreme watermelon carving entitled "Baboon Watermelon"
