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 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.

Just had to feature one of my sister Janine’s lovely pencil drawings.  It is of a Japanese Geisha sculpture in my garden.  Jan has included a crane on the collar of the kimono as this picture is being presented at an artshow for the launch of  Annette LeBox’s new book a Circle of Cranes.

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).

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”
