Dallas Cowboy Toys

Tobie Percival

Tobie Percival

About Me: 5 years! I can hardly believe it! It seems just like yesterday when I was a rookie and getting lost trying to make my way around Dallas. Boy, have things changed! I have a Texas drivers license, my parents say I talk with a little drawl, and I’m officially a resident of Dallas with my own place.

I am originally from Utah where I was born and raised. I have one brother, two sisters, one nephew and four nieces. And don’t let me forget two toy poodles back in Salt Lake City. My parents visit me often and attend as many games as they possibly can!

In my spare time I love hanging out with my boyfriend and friends. We all love to go boating, and I recently learned to surf behind his boat which is so much fun. I’m looking forward to this year and feel blessed to have the opportunity to share with the squad everything that the 2010-2011 season is going to bring. The Superbowl for one, another U.S.O. tour to bring smiles to the faces of our troops, and hopefully to watch our Cowboys play in the big one in February!

Thanks for visiting my page! Go Cowboys!!!!!

In the second grade, I wanted to be She-Ra.

Giraffe on the "savannah"

Giraffe on the

This hand-carved wooden giraffe was a gift from a nurse who spent time at a clinic in South Africa. I started this shot with the general idea of creating some feel of afternoon on a savannah. I used gift packing for the "grass" and tried a few different backdrops at the house. When none of them worked, I remembered that I had a few sky pictures that may work as a composite. Shot from as low an angle as I could at the time, to feel a little more like I was looking up at the giraffe.

Strobist: Single 430ex in 28" softbox at about 4 or 5 o'clock. 1/2 CTO gel to warm the light. Low angle to give a sunset feel. I initially used a bare flash, to get a more sunlight-like hard source, but the gloss on the giraffe made for too uneven a reflection. My compromise was the softbox and a full-length highlight.

I am by no means a compositing expert (obviously), but it was fun to take a simple wooden toy and give it a different context.

Lessons learned: (1) If compositing is your thing, keep a file of interesting sky and background pictures. You never know when you might use them. (2) The highlight and background light directions need to be aligned in compositing. I didn't quite get that here. (3) Compositing hard edges is much easier than soft edges. (4) A longer lens and a more dramatic upward angle would have helped the illusion.

[3/52] Memories

Memories from my childood

Taken for the "52 of Twenty Eleven" project. Week #3. Theme: memories...

As a child I loved this simple wooden colorful toy, and I still do love it! When I pull it all the balls start moving, rotating, waving... so simple but cool.
This strange "snail" is still with me after so many years. While I was pulling it to take the photo, keeping in my hands the short string, I recognized how small I was!

One more thing!!! I forgot before! My mother says I should add this small story to this photo. So, when I was already about 22 23 years old my mother gave to the kids of the neighbors a box full of old toys from me and my sister. My mother took this "snail" thinking that it was not useful anymore. Biiiiig mistake! I realized immediately that the snail was gone ..and ... in short, I could not resist and I went to the neighbors to get my snail back ... I think they laughed a lot about me ;) :D

CEATEC 2008 - Pleo robot dinosaur

CEATEC 2008 - Pleo robot dinosaur

The Pleo is a cute little robot dinosaur which responds to touch. It walks, talks, ‘eats’ leaves, and will happily move when you stroke or pat him. Feedback sensors under the chin, feet and on the body get him walking and wriggling with glee. And a camera inside his head helps him spy dinner.
The Pleo develops his personality as he grows older – so the way you interact with him will affect his behaviour. He has four different states, ‘happy and curious’, ‘playful and lively’, ‘scared and surprised’, and ‘sad and vexed’. To get the best from him you need to ensure that he’s well fed, played with, and comforted when scared.
This robotic pet is delightful, and his movements are completely organic unlike some other robots. He would make a really unique toy/pet. Some of you will be wondering if this is the new Sony Aibo – and we think you’re right.
This was a popular display at CEATEC 2008 and judging by the crowds the Japanese will be buying the Pleo in droves. We’re sure that it’ll be a big hit this Christmas in the UK. If we had the money we’d be at the head of the queue for one - it’s now available online for ?300.

dinosaur jungle #stranglethorn vale

My kids' toys. I don't know why but I like these little dinos. Maybe because it's a mom and baby. They came in a cute Landrover-type jeep. (I had a thing for trucks and hot wheels when I was little. )

Clover is growing in the backyard like crazy. I LOVE clover so much more than grass. But it's also great for filling in the bald spots of a lawn. Sad it doesn't do all that well in our high summer temperatures.

First attempt at creating a fake medium format look. Made with approx 12 images. Had to fudge the fake a little bit. But fun to try anyway.

Miner's car

Miner's car

A nearby sign reads "Triggered by an earthquake the sudden collapse of the mountain's north slope released an explosive force. A turbulent, stone-filled wind silently roared over the land. The steamy, 400 degree Fahrenheit blast cloud raced through the forest at 350 mph. Reaching this location, 8 1/2 miles from the mountain in a little more than one minute. This car was tossed about like a toy, rolled from across the road where it had been parked. Owners of the car were in their cabin at a nearby mine and were killed when Mount St. Helens erupted"

Japanese Spinning Toy

Japanese Spinning Toy

This totemic badges spin.

Japanese children, especially boys, are obsessed with spinning (tops, yo-yos, themselves) because, I think, they are attempting to create a three dimensional visual representation of self using the two two-dimensional views they have on the world.

Internalisation of a totemic symbol is another way to achieve self-hood. A spinning totemic symbol has twice the magic. The latest Masked Rider has a device to spin his totem badges on his arm.

Plans For Wooden Toys For Children. Popular Toys In 1950. Toys For Boys Age 2.

Plans For Wooden Toys For Children

plans for wooden toys for children

studio 1 with china paint box

studio 1 with china paint box

I chose this room for my studio when we moved in here. It's at the back of the third floor. I thought it was the place where I would be most able to concentrate on work. I have a decent easel bought from my college design teacher and a drawing table. There's a sturdy table Elliot made by one wall, it is stacked with big sheets of Arches paper that may, one day, become drawings. Under the table are bins with ancestral documents that were in a cousins attic a stuff from my mothers house also the architectural plans for Eastern State Penitentiary, another trash find.

My art books are in shelves lining the hall wall just outside of the studio and in shelves lining the adjourning little room along with favorite fiction including lots of Collette, Sarah Orne Jewett, Kate Chopin and Willa Cather.

The room faces west so it gets great light. I don't paint and draw much but I do lots of photo projects here. The window might look familiar.

The studio is filled with a lot of things. Things from my past. Three child size rocking chairs for instance. One belonged to my mother's father one of my only Walters family items, the little black one was mine (one of a pair, my sister Kathy has the other, they matched my mother's big rocker, also in the studio) and the wicker one was from our summer cottage a Hibbard relic.

In the corner by the door to the hallway is a set of deep Ikea shelves. Liza, my mother's doll and a favorite subject of mine, is in a doll crib on the top shelf next to the Japanese lady sent to us by my childhood exchange student Miko's mother.

On one shelf there are all sorts of things from the wooden shoe that was always on my grandmother's mantle with Flanders 1917 written on it to a carved ostrage egg, a gift from a friend in grad school, that encloses one of the last apples from my grandmother's Northern Spy apple tree. The apple is small and studded with cloves just like the first apple from the tree, even smaller than this, that used to be in my grandmother's china cabinet. This apple reminds me of the jars of canned apples lining the shelves in Nanny's basement where we played when we were little.

All of these thing bring back stories, flashes of images, the sound of voices long gone. I could box a lot of this up and put it in the attic but then I wouldn't hear my grandmother's or mother's and father's voices telling the stories.

Under the Ikea shelves are two trunks from my grandmother's attic. When I was in my twenties I would spend days at her house rummaging in the boxes in her attic and basement. when I found something interesting I'd take it to the kitchen and we'd talk about it. For example, I found a china sheep, this was the story about it.

My great grandmother came from Denmark when she was seven and this was the toy cow she brought with her. They sold their farm and all came at the urging of the Christensen family who had settled in Alden PA. They came to work in the mines as did all of my Welsh ancestors.

Their family name was Bush, but not really, it was actually Neilsson but they lived down by the bushes so they became Bush. Bush is the name on their gravestones but not on my great grandmother's marriage certificate which says that Mary Nelson married James Bryan. Her name was originally Bodil Marie Neilsson. She hated the name Bodil.

In the middle of the floor is the box that my great grandmother's brother made for my grandmother's china paints. Uncle Conrad, pronounced Conerd, lived at the lake, was a great turtle hunter, and had one arm. We used to visit him, he had a big conch shell, you could hear the ocean if you put it up to your ear.

Looking at these thing makes me want to tell the stories. Talk about the Benny the Badger stories my father would tell us at bedtime, and the hair wrapped in silk. It's my grandmother's hair, saved when she had it bobbed in the twenties.

If I don't tell the stories no one will know what these things are and why I keep them.
Clearly I'm a little nostalgic.But I know stories that others in my family don't.

I don't have the Welsh stories, just that one of my Welsh my great grandfathers was a powerful coal mine boss and great grandmother taught my Uncle Bill to say mochyn diawl pronounced mochyn jawl meaning devil pig. He apparently was a little red haired rascal, traded my mother for a bicycle!

Roland Jones, 48, mental health worker

Roland Jones, 48, mental health worker

Photo and text from Mind Out for Mental Health's 1 in 4 project, 2002.

It all started to go wrong following a spinal injury when I was in the fire service. I was 35 and spent the next few years trying to prove I was capable of keeping a job - trying to be better than anyone else, in other words trying to be the indispensable man. It led to perfectionism and obsessive compulsive behaviour. I would check things again and again ...and again.

The children were growing up around me but I wasn’t part of it. I wasn’t able to handle simple things like paying the bills; I couldn’t tell anyone because of the shame. My wife will tell you I cried for three weeks continually. Then on February 7th I thought “that’s it, I’m a burden to everyone.” I bought a bottle of spirits and some pain killers and took the train to Conway. I intended to finish myself off but while I made a good job with the bottle I didn’t do much with the tablets.

When my wife came to find me the first thing she said was “Is it something I’ve done?” That hurt a lot. When the psychologist saw me he said it was trauma and I believed him. Back at work I seemed to put myself back together again; the fire service didn’t know I had a mental health problem because I didn’t know myself. Life just felt very uncomfortable.

When I eventually left the fire service in 1992 I planned to make wooden toys in my shed in the garden but then it was broken into and all my tools were stolen. My self-esteem was rock bottom. Rank and position provides you with a niche in life and when that’s taken away you have nothing. People are judged by what they do so suddenly I was nobody.

One day I was tidying the house and getting ready for some exchange students when I sat down on the carpet and cried my eyes out. I just kept saying “I don’t know what to do”. So my wife called the doctor and I spent the next nine weeks as a voluntary patient in the psychiatric hospital. Eventually I came to the Fountain Project as a volunteer and now I have a job there. We all live with and manage mental illness. When we have our down days we support each other.

My wife has been amazing. She had to deal with doctors, lawyers, tribunals, insurance companies, as well as bringing up three children and doing a job. I doubt I’d have survived without her.

Good friends will be good friends no matter what happens, but there are others who shy away from the fact you’ve got a mental illness. It boils down to whether they were friends after all. If you tell them you’ve got a spinal injury they’ll listen, but talk about depression and they switch off.

When I came out of hospital I realised that a person who hasn’t made a mistake has made nothing. Before if I’d cut a bit of wood wrong I’d give up; now I go back and measure again. I realised problems could be put right. In outside relationships it meant admitting to mistakes. Honesty with yourself and others is a primary factor to getting better.

FACT: In a survey by Mind in 2001, 62% of respondents said that the main barrier to recovering from mental health problems was the attitude of the general public. (Mind, 2001)

Monaco Royale Vanessa

Monaco Royale Vanessa

The W Club exclusive Vanessa doll from 2011 has finally arrived! She's an exclusive and limited edition of 810 dolls. Every member was given a chance to purchase this doll for $135.

Monaco Royale uses the revamped "Fauxnessa" sculpt. I think she's gorgeous, but would have to agree with a lot of collectors that she doesn't look a whole lot like the old Vanessa. I think Integrity did start with her old sculpt, however--You can still see her squared jaw. She reminds me some of Vero, and a lot of Anja, too. And she's had some collagen injections in her lips so she can look a little more like Poppy. (I love those lips!)

First, two pet peeves of the doll: The necklace was hard to fasten (it took me forever!), and the hairline looks a little off balance to me.

Those two things aside, I think she is gorgeous. I love the brunette updo, her lavender and peachy facial screening. My doll's lashes are perfect.

The gown is really elegant. The wrapped skirt is super soft and falls just right. The top is meticulously sequined and beaded over lace, and I don't have a single loose sequin out of place. It zips in the back and fits perfectly. I love the gold belt accessory.

Her jewelry is really nice--earrings, very nice necklace with a tiny clasp, nice big earrings (without being out of scale) and three gold bangles. Plus, she includes a cosmopolitan. To me, Vanessa has always seemed more like a a gin and tonic kind of girl.

Her shoes are gold buckled sandals, which slid right onto her foot, no unbuckling needed. Wow.

Anyway, I'm pleased with her.

Check out more photos of her on Flickr!

Tiffany Taylor Dolls

Tiffany Taylor Dolls

* Vintage plastic or vinyl 18" fashion dolls, Tiffany Taylor, Ideal, 1975. This doll has a rotating scalp with white-blonde hair on one side and black hair with bangs on the other. Groovy embroidered bell bottoms with fringed hem made by me. Tank top is cut from 99? store knit cap. In my collection. Jan. 2011.

I need to take a photo with a Barbie next to one so you can see how big this girl is. I know it would ruin the collectible value but I want to do a repaint and replace the hair with a wavy wig.

The Fall of Western Plaza

The Fall of Western Plaza

So Western Plaza is finally being razed. Sunset Center was the first mall in Amarillo. Later (in the late '60s) they built Western Plaza. Growing up it was great. It had a Cinema where I saw many great films for the first time (Star Wars). It had Furr's Cafeteria. It had Toy's By Roy where I went to dream about G.I. Joes. Monkey Ward's.

My uncle had one of his first jobs here working as a night janitor for Woolco. (stories?)

Around 1980 they opened a new mall called Westgate. It was so much better than Western Plaza. Everyone said Western Plaza was doomed. It did change over they years. They tried and tried to come up with new directions for it. Eventually Monkey Ward's just closed. Sevice Merchandisers went out. Furr's held on until the end. The Cinema became a church. Little shops came and went.

Then last year they sold the property and the new owners said they were going to raze it and build new buildings with great new shops.

And so it begins.

Caveat Emptor1

Caveat Emptor1

People! Beware! There are some rotten eggs selling these two "Bootleg" figures on ebay! Mainly from a City country in you know where. Mosu Goji on the left only released in 50th Anniversary set and the tail was glued. This one came with the detached tail with the poor paint job. '74 Goji on the right only issued with a tag and this one never had a tag and the tail also came detached with also poor paint job. I have doubles of originals so I know they are fake! I repainted them like the original and now they look great but they are not genuine. Good for diorama or simply to play with. So beware when you see them on ebay in numbers! They all say "Rare" but so common now! Typical price range for them is around $20. This kind of bad eggs make me sick!

Folk Toy (lion)

Folk Toy (lion)

This was my first real wood carving I've ever done. it was inspired by a book i found about old children's folk toys. I started this piece in around early november when Stefan Henegar generously gave me a large block of wood, thanks buddy. The first half of carving consisted of making four legs (subtracting between them). I was inspired to finish it so i could submit it with my portfolio along with one other 3-D piece. We were not allowed to submit the actual sculpture, but rather photograph it, and submit the results. I'm most proud of these two pictures.

work in progress of a toy I designed. I'm planning on making 30 of the little bars. All will be hand painted and will be bundled with a 2 color print. Price and paint scheme to be determined. *edit* I'm going to make these guys till I get tired of making them. Could be 30 could be 100. Then I'll go on to a new robot design.

United States Air Force - Northrop Grumman E-8C Joint STARS (J-STARS) - USAF 94-0284 - Aviation Nation 2010 - Rehearsal - Nellis Air Force Base (LSV) - November 12, 2010 1 158 RT CRP

United States Air Force - Northrop Grumman E-8C (Boeing 707-338C) Joint Stars - USAF 94-0284 (c/n 19293/546/P-5)

This J-Stars aircraft began life as a standard passnger carrying Boeing 707 (707-338C) in 1967 when it was delivered brand new to Qantas Airways as VH-EBT "City of Bendigo." Then it would move on to British Midland Airways (BMA) as G-BFLE. While operated by BMA it would be leased by Air Algerie, Pakistan International Airlines Cargo (PIA Cargo), Arianna, and DETA - Direccao de Exploracao de Transportes Aereos (DETA - Linhas Aereas de Mocambique).

Burlington Air Express would be the aircraft's next operator (as N861BX) beginning in 1985 and into the early '90s, when it was also operated by Southern Air Transport. The last civilian registration it wore was N2178F, before the US Air Force purchased the airframe for conversion by Northrop Grumman into an E-8 Joint STARS (Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System) aircraft in 1994.
