Convo is a deaf-owned, “signing-centric” video relay service and communication solutions company for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. They recently featured Carlisle Robinson, a Center for Cartoon Studies alum and the creator of Doodles by Carlisle, a comic series aimed at “poking fun at daily lives of deaf people and the disability community in general, at issues we often face every day.”
I had the pleasure of speaking with Carlisle when they were still a CCS student back in 2013, for a story about their efforts to bridge the communication gap between the deaf and hearing worlds, particularly in White River Junction, where they had launched a weekly course in American Sign Language. Glad to see they are still doing well on their journey!
