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!
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 creates his 2nd Pumpkin Carving of a Panda. Little bigger than the first Panda Pumpkin, but every bit as cute!
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!
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!

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.
