Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers makes cuts

Now I bet you are scratching your head on this one. What’s it got to do with Ginpu. Well my friends… As of this afternoon, I became one of that 8% to be laid off. Why me? Because I lacked the seniority in my position. As you should know by now, my job went from a graphic artist to a data entry person. ALL those awards, letters of joy and recommendation… it means nothing because the job description changed. We don’t have a big turn over for artists there. I was working on hitting my 5th year in less than 5 months.

Yeah. They gave us severance packages. To the tune of 1 week for every 6 months of service, rounded up. So I should have 10 weeks. I haven’t read all the details. I just don’t want to. A bit of the shock is wearing off right now. Gotta grab another beer.

Tomorrow I have my exit interview. Today I packed up what was my stuff personally. In 5 years I had accumulated a lot of toys apparently. LOL. I also am eligible for unemployment.

I don’t want to be overly emotional or anything on you guys. The show must go on! Life must go on! So what does this mean?

Well, if you are interested in a commission… NOW is the time! hehe. I honestly don’t know when I will have a job again. What I do know is that I am going to work my ass off. I am going to draw this comic. I am going to update at least 3 times a week. I am going to pursue my dream and make it as an artist. All while owning my own creations.

Even though I may be a bit down. I am not out. I won’t let this take me out. So any help is appreciated from all of you. Link to my comic. Point people my way for a commission. Increase in web traffic at ginpu.us…
