Hi, my name is Marc Carson. I run a business called Marc Carson Web Design where I build websites and write code most of the day. I also do some illustration work on the side. In the past I have worked as an art teacher, graphic designer (print and video), musician, and computer network technician. There’s usually some blend of creativity and technology in whatever I’m doing.
If you want to get in touch, feel free to email me: baggageclaim [a t] friendlyskies.net
If you want to check out my web design work, or contact me about a web project, please visit marccarson.com. Otherwise, you’re in the right place to view my other works—drawings, computer illustrations, 3D animation, and more.
I also like making 3D textures and materials. I have released over 150 of them to the public.
I am always doin’ stuff with music. I have a bunch of little doodles and sketches that I post from time to time. Sometimes I am daring enough to add my own vocals.
I’ve used tracker software for making music since 1993, and DAWs like Propellerheads’ Reason since 2001. Right now I use Renoise most of the time. I used to be a freelance musician, and I made a lot of music for websites and interactive CD-ROM titles.
When I’m messing around with computers I usually try to get them to do music-related things. Like, play Led Zeppelin.
I draw and post a lot of my drawings on Flickr and Facebook, though you are more likely to have access to the former (I’ll have to fix that). I also have some drawings here on the site.
I do a lot of programming for work, mostly in PHP and some in Python. A lot of my hobby programming is in C, Python, or Processing (simple Java).
For work I really love using new web tech and surprising my clients with cool website features and other fun stuff that’s actually useful.
It just so happens that I can speak some Japanese. You’ll occasionally see some of it in my drawings.
I do writing here in my Notebook and in some other places online like Twitter.
You could say I’m pretty religious. I spend a lot of my spare time inside of a church, helping to keep things running, and I find it very rewarding. Most of what I do is enhanced or informed in some way by my experiences as a spirtually-minded person.
I love a good bike ride. I often play Pickleball on the weekends, too. I like Pickleball because it’s easy to pick up and challenging even if you’re playing against someone with a different skill level.
I have two little boys who giggle and hit each other with heavy objects, and a little girl who is quickly becoming wise to the little boys.
I have a wife who is a great writer and is always cooking up something amazing.
We have two cats who are OK sharing a lap, and enjoy staring at neighborhood goings-on.
