GETTING PERSONAL: I’m Now Unemployed

Last updated: December 17, 2016 at 12:46 pm

My problems at work are entirely solved; I’m now unemployed. Not because I’m fired, but because Mental Health has eliminated the 5PM work crew program that I’ve been a part of for 9 years. The good news is that a new company has been found and is hired. The bad news is that they are taking over the entire evening shift and are going to do all the work of the evening custodian, meaning me and my co-workers are not needed. If the boss tries to convince the company to hire me, I’ll have to report to work during the 9-10PM hour which is way much too late for me to do.  So it won’t work.

Since the last day of the usual 5PM crew is on December 9th and there’s no other jobs of interest available at the center, I made my decision to resign and not work there anymore –at least until they decide to reinstate the 5PM program someday. So now I’m unemployed and is looking for another job. It would’ve been no use to stay at the mental health center until Dec 9th. I’ll end up getting laid off and be out of work anyway.

There is a upside to all this. I can spend a ton of time with my beloved harps, playing music and creating Youtube videos I’ll post on this site, creating more Punisher harp art, including Punisher harp art based on the works of Jim Lee, Mike Zeck, the late Steve Dillon, and other well known Punisher artists. Here’s 2 Punisher sketch art images showing 4 heads of Frank. I’ve been practicing drawing various heads of Frank since last night and much of today.

These heads will serve as role models for future Punisher harp art I’ll create while enjoying my time off from work.
