Demon Pumpkin and The Weather Network

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.

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).

June 28th – July 10

And that’s not even counting the few 100 sites that have grabbed a photo from our site and linked his photos. Facebook and Twitter sites?  How many? Who knows?

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!

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.

Watermelon Carving, Watermelon Carvings

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.

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

Sharon makes another attempt at painting the french medallion Marianne. This is the 2nd watercolour attempt, plus one was created with conte crayons.

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.

And so it begins . . . Jiggy TV Halloween

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.
