CHRIS WISNIA’S RESUME – 2002

That’s right … Chris Wisnia’s Resume!
This week, we offer a real treat to fans! We hope it will help all you aspiring comics professionals, not only to see what a resume should look like if you have no actual experience or qualifications, but also as inspiration to fill out your own resumes!

Before our own artistic hack, Chris Wisnia, began his “serious” (i.e. “actually published”) professional comics career, he spent many years waiting in many portfolio review lines, and sending a lot of packages to publishers, and never getting any work! Below is – NO JOKE! – an exact duplicate of the resume he submitted over and over for these endeavors!

Personally, in hindsight, we don’t recommend you aspiring comics people try using this technique for youselves, as Chris never once heard back from an editor he sent this resume to! They never called or wrote to share how amusing they found this resume! Study it closely, and tomorrow we’ll post Chris’s current resume . . . for comparitive purposes! -Rob!
