Alligator Watermelon Carving Goes Viral!

Clive's recent alligator watermelon carving continues to spread across the web and social media sites.  In my last blog, I think I mentioned that we created a very quick video on how it was carved, since we were getting so many questions regarding that.  Global BC TV is supposedly coming to film him this Monday, so will be sure to keep you updated on that too!

Here's the link and below that, the carving that started it all off!   Go to Youtube and type in:  Clive Cooper Carvings You are welcome to use our images and video on your site, as long as you provide a "clickable link" to: www.sparksflydesign.com You are welcome to use our images and video on your site, as long as you provide a "clickable link" to: www.sparksflydesign.com Read more

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.

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!
