He has vast experience in designing,  directing and producing all sorts of sand projects himself.  Not surprising, since he is one of the principle partners in the Sandscapes company. This was his second year working on the SOS crew for the summer show, and he was joined by his lovely wife Gina for some european travel during his comp time and afterwards as well,  as Kevin continues his working tour this season.

 Tex Willer is an indian sympathizing, 'good guy.'
The  protaganist of this modern fiction that is very popular in Italy.  Practically a contemporary spin-off of the "Dime Novel," the Tex Willer cartoon hero stands as an icon of the Wild West culture in Italy, where it is read by over 150,000 readers weekly. Ironically, it is virtually unknown in America.

 The Gold Rush 
by Karen Fralich and Kevin Crawford
Canada and Australia

  The great California Gold Rush of 1849 was big, but it was not the only one. Many people from the east left their homes and careers to strike out for the gold to be found in the west. So too, did many other people from as far away as Europe, Japan and China. Some miners hit it big, but most did not. There were many methods employed, from pit mining in cooperation with teams of people,  to panning for gold in streams and rivers by the single prospectors. In those times, an ounce of gold would buy a nice suit of clothes, a good meal, and a nights stay in a hotel. Just about the same as it would today.
