And just in time for the Angry Birds the movie, here is "Big Red" carved in watermelon (gotta' love the little carrot feet)!  Clive felt it was time to do sculpt one for the kids -  Angry Birds Watermelon! Angry Birds Watermelon    

Alligator Watermelon Carving

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! Alligator Watermelon Watermarked  

African Lion Pumpkin Carving by Clive Cooper

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!   African Lion Pumpkin Carving by Clive Cooper

East Vancouver vegetable and fruit sculptor a master of his ghoulish craft – The Province

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. Go Clive! The Province (http://www.theprovince.com/life/East+Vancouver+vegetable+fruit+sculptor+master+ghoulish+craft/9940498/story.html)

Too pretty to eat? Artist makes quicky watermelon sculptures – Clive Cooper on The Today Show

Well, Clive was featured on the Today Show, but a bit disappointing I thought.  They only showed a couple of watermelons like his Google eyed silly frog, and Anime warrior, and not even the alligator carving that is currently going viral on the web.  Plus they didn't even get time to mention our website.  Apparently a breaking story usurped it.  So much for his grand debut on the Today Show!
