Ronald "Otts" Bolisay
Visual communications for fun and social change: illustration, comics, graphic design, video, animation.
I worked 14 years doing communications work for small nonprofits, wearing many hats:
- Video production
- Graphic design
- Strategic communications planning
- Social media management
- Media relations
- Content creation
- Community development
- Brand management
These days, I do communications work with the City of Seattle and work with a range of nonprofits as part of RoadMap Consulting. On the side, I'm exploring being an artist in the DIY world of mini comix, zines and self-published books.
I also do comics making workshops.
