This is another sweet piece of news that happened over the holidays, but I am just now able to share. And believe me, it's been tough holding it back.
But yes it's true. There is going to be a new MRS DUCK!
I'd been putting pennies together for a while. Scraping and scrounging. Early in November I finally had the rock in hand. It was just a matter of being sure, and finding the right moment, because Lord knows, I am all about the moment.
To celebrate our two year anniversary, my baby took me out to St. Petersburg for a romantic and high class dinner at Chateau France. The whole night was gorgeous, and the ring was snug in my pocket. But that moment was so elusive.
Then over desert, as she was nibbling on her Crepes Suzette, a small drizzle of ice cream slipped off her fork and onto of all things, HER RING FINGER! It slowly draped itself over and formed a sweet, cool, creamy band, and at that moment I KNEW!
SO I popped down on one knee, saying it was time.
She tensed up. A good, anxious tension. A smile and a small look of sweet but excited fear crept into her brow. "It's time?" she claimed.
I told her that I felt alive when I was with her, and that my life with her was an adventure I wanted to share forever.
The yes came quickly, without hesitation.
Moments later, we were serenaded by a French song bird. As I held my future wife's hand, La Vie En Rose whispered softly in the background.
High on the moment and a bit of bubbly, we took a crisp nights walk to the bayside. There, after sharing a romantic kiss under twinkling Christmas covered trees, I took my beautiful queen by the hand and we climbed into a Cinderella horse drawn carriage. Ending the evening in an embrace and a ride around the park.
To say I am happy is an understatement. Summer of 2012 Jaime Turner will complete me!

So December and January  have been some trying and tough months for the duck, but have also included some truly amazing moments! In mid November I got word that due to some unfortunate events, my daughters would be coming to live with me for the time being.  Now anyone that knows me, realizes that this is indeed one of the best pieces of news I could get. Especially since prior to that they were living a thousand miles away. I was a little upset to say the least that they were basically kicked out, but thrilled at the idea of having them here.
The thing that scared me though was that I was living in a hotel at the time and very close to penniless. I managed to pull together the funds to go and get them, but upon returning, realized that a hotel room is not a home for my girls. Fortunately, thanks to the power of prayer and a BIG assist from my Florida family, we were able to be in an apartment by the New Year!
We don't have much, (they sleep on an air mattress for the time being) but at least it's a home, and we are together! If anyone wants to donate furniture (contact me via email) or funds, the paypal is ;0)
So while mom gets her situation worked out, daddy has his babies home. And that makes me happy. It made for a GREAT Christmas present.

Due to the tightness of funds, I have NO Cable...and worse NO INTERNET. So forgive the sparse updates and communication. Most of what I do, I do on my cell phone.

I will also be attending Wizard World Miami in February! And Megacon in March!

Just wrapped up sketch card work on various projects including Star Wars Galaxy 6, Lady Death, and Femforce!

In the works are projects with Upperdeck (Marvel Beginnings, and Thor) 5Finity (Manga Mandy, Sheena) Badaxe studios (Dungeon Dolls) and Sadlittles (Luxura)

Pair all this with the big news above, and things are looking pretty good!

Sea Witch Place Holder

Okay, so here we are almost a month after I promised a large update and I have slacked again. I REAALLLLY hate not having constant internet access and I have a huge amount of news to share. But for now, this will have to do. Here is a pen and ink draw of Ariel's monster of a nemesis. Ursula. I promise promise promise to give a thorough update this week.

I'm still alive.

Many of you have been wondering what hole I have fallen into and I apologize for that.
The month of December brought about many amazing and fantastic changes, but alas brought me a few set backs as well.
I will give a much larger update in the next few days, but the most important one I can tell you is that my daughters are living with me for now. We also have found a home as opposed to a hotel, but the downside is I have extremely limited internet access for the time being. (Only my Iphone in the house, and libraries, McDonalds, and Hot Spots here and there) No longer even have cable.
But I will try to get to those spots at least two or three times a week.
Anyone on any social network sites that may try to contact me there should note that I can access twitter, facebook, and some others but CANNOT chat there. So do not be offended if you try to chat me and get no response.
The New Year has brought tons of changes, and I'm in the process of preparing for them.
Thanks for your patience. More details here on Wednesday.
