Last week East Vancouver artist Clive Cooper decided he wanted to carve a cyborg out of a pumpkin.
It’s not unusual for an idea like this to pop into the self-taught fruit and vegetable sculptor’s mind. Like all of Cooper’s three-dimensional carvings – the result was extraordinary and detailed.
He takes carving a little further than the average jack-o-lantern you’d usually see at somebody’s front doorstep on Halloween, bringing the pumpkins to life in a unique way.
“That’s one of the most enjoyable parts about carving, getting a thrill from trying to see what kind of crazy stuff I can come up with and then seeing the reaction I get from people,” the 61-year-old told Vancouver Is Awesome.
