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:
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.

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.
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!
This has to be one of my favorite watermelon carvings Clive has done. I think it’s really whimsical. How many Samurai Warrior watermelons have you seen lately? Click on the photo to enter the Watermelon Carving gallery and check out his pumpkin carvings while you are on the site as well.
And here’s a nice photo of Domenico, Julia and Clive just before the filming began.
Haven’t come up with a title for this carving yet. Any suggestions? I can see Clive improving every time he carves and I think this extreme pumpkin creature is his most awesome yet.
Clive created this carving for the folks at Jiggy TV.
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”
Extreme Watermelons, Watermelons, Watermelon carving, Watermelon carvings, Watermelon Carvers? Baboon Watermelon, Clive Cooper? So many ways to search for Clive’s wonderful, whimsical carvings.
Clive did his thing at Metrotown Mall today with fellow carvers Bruce Waugh, Craig Mutch, David Billings, Fred Dobbs and other professional carvers. Being fairly new to the game, this is the first time he has ever carved such a large pumpkin (about 160lbs) and in such a short time. This event was aired on CTV News late this evening, and imagine there’s more footage yet to come – in time for Halloween, as there were plenty of news cameras focused on the carvers. Stay tuned!
There seems to be a lot of media web activity surrounding this event as well. Here’s what I’ve found so far:
