  • Tue, 16:04: I think I've drawn 26 fewer 3Faces than I thought I had. But that would mean I haven't missed celebrating number 1500.
  • Tue, 16:49: If my new calculations are correct, and if I don't miss any days, the 1500th 3Faces will update on Palm Sunday.
  • Tue, 17:04: The last half or so of the new Doctor Who season is gonna air during the annual 3Faces summer hiatus. It' s been years since that happened.
  • Tue, 18:31: Hero of Three Faces sketch: didn't wanna update with this but it wouldn't be told. https://t.co/NGJjgtoG76 #doctorwho
  • Tue, 19:24: My original calculations were correct. The 1500th 3Faces was updated on pi day. https://t.co/WcFzDc7kCO #doctorwho #class

  • Tue, 18:11: Hero of Three Faces update: that's what you get for dropping in without notice. https://t.co/BXSKRe28re #supergirl #btvs
  • Tue, 19:09: made myself go to the laundromat today even though at first it looked overcast so i wasnt psyched for it any more
  • Wed, 10:51: There needs to be more random nudity in 3Faces to accent the gags that say nudity's a normal thing in the multiverse.

I’m thinking, if/when the Republican administration gets rid of net neutrality, depending on reader feedback I may want/need to give up the fancy-shmancy panel-per-page format at the main Hero of Three Faces site, and/or the all-image-files format at Creative Process. Convert to a format easier to load, just one image - the whole strip for the day - per page and the rest of the page all text; rather like Hero of Three Faces was originally conceived, in the days of Webcomicsnation.com. Most likely combined into a new title. I’ve actually known for years what that title would be and have already designed/drafted some of the pages. Originally it was an idea for a general interest webcomic, back when I thought I’d want to do another of those after Arthur, King of Time and Space was done (I’ve been referring to this title/format enigmatically as “I know what I’d do” at least ever since my discussion at AKOTAS about what if some screen studio wanted to buy AKOTAS out from me). Remember on the Three Faces site where I wrote (in the middle of the compleat history of my cartooning on the occasion of the 2014 format change) that I noticed I reboot my internet fanfiction’s continuity and/or format about every five years? This’s what I already suspected I’d do when all the work that goes with the panel-per-page format gets old (or I do). I may decide I need to do it early for the sake of readability.

Those of you who still read triangle fanfiction cartoons through LJ entry links, do you like the weekly notifications or would you prefer daily like I do on Tumblr? Please respond one way or the other, because if I shouldn't get any responses I'm likely to stop believing anyone uses LJ entries as their primary gateway any more, and quit them.

  • Tue, 17:26: Just discovered I left my site working files at work. No 3Faces update today.
  • Tue, 17:33: (Which means, since my policy is not to update twice in 24 hours, tomorrow I get an enforced day off.)
  • Tue, 17:36: (Unless ... I draw one this evening to update this evening, before updating tomorrow after work with what I drew today. Stay tuned.)
  • Tue, 18:09: okay got a single panel gag to draw
  • Tue, 19:19: Hm. For the second half of the Darillium night I ought to have the Doctor in what he's wearing in #Class. But, another day.
  • Tue, 21:28: Hero of Three Faces update: so much for monomyths. https://t.co/gmtP1sI1X0 #h2g2 #hhgg #doctorwho
  • Tue, 21:58: looks like all's necessary to make the doctor's THORS suit into his FTWMD suit is removing the tie. but that's for a day when my USB is home

[grief post]

Today it’s two years since my wife passed away. Last time I wrote about this was to say that I was disappointed at how little the Doctor Who Christmas special affected me, but then the second time I watched it… I’ve felt differently about her loss at different times in the time since, and I guess that’s how it’s going to be till I see her again (outside of dreams). My mother asked whether I was doing something special and suggested I ought to do something Leah would want me to enjoy, so I’ll be seeing Ghostbusters and Star Trek Beyond the third time each. Then I’ll come home and watch The Doctor’s Wife because that’s what I’ve reached in my rewatch anyway.

Today is also the traditional date for The Hero of Three Faces to come off its annual summer hiatus so, if there hasn’t been enough never-before-seen MSPaint Doctor Who panel cartoon fan art in your life lately, go check it out.

Last year for the Hero of Three Faces summer hiatus I linked reruns daily from the main site front page, the just-ended season's gags in chronological order, because it came to three months. This year I decided that was too much work for a summer break. Also there were about twice as many cartoons this year (yay), so daily reruns woulda lasted till December. This year the main site'll be posting reruns in no particular order on no particular schedule. I'm not even going to keep track of which ones I've already used, so you may just see my dozen or two favorites over and over, except I don't expect to be changing them often enough for there to be dozens of repeats in three or four months. Again, the way you can tell a rerun is when the front page's Production Order "next" and "last" links are active. Or when this notice hasn't been removed from the front page, whatever.

Today's the fortieth anniversary of the first of what I'm pleased to call my daily cartoons. Since the end of Arthur, King of Time and Space, I've put in some effort to be able to say, with what I at least consider reasonable certainty, that I've averaged drawing and displaying a cartoon a day since 1976: either carrying them around in blue binders or sketchbooks or posting them on the internet, the stretches of no cartoons compensated for by the stretches of two or more cartoons a day. And at The Hero of Three Faces for the past few months, for the first time since embarrassingly long before the last day of AKOTAS, I've been waking up each day assuming there'll be a new cartoon and most days there actually is. On days when there hasn't been either a new Three Faces or a new Creative Process I've knocked out a sketch and posted it to Tumblr. But you know what, forty years is a lot and I think I've proven anything I wanted to. I'm not going to worry about that any more. So I'm celebrating by taking the day off.

  • Trump's threat to criminalize news criticizing him oughta been all his supporters needed to see why he's compared to Hitler; but, no.
  • I liked writing today's 3Faces so much I drew Friday's Creative Process about it.
  • Put a garbage can to the curb this morning for pickup tomorrow and when I got home from work it and most of its contents had vanished. #wind
  • Only most. #wind
  • Found my garbage can. Someone had put it with the neighbors'.
  • I dunno how people can approach a subject with a closed mind and bad faith on their sleeve and then come away thinking they won at something.
  • In the immortal words of Fred Hembeck in 1978, "Because it's Superman!"
  • See you on the other side
  • Goddammit MCU. I always stayed through the credits anyway but now I'm afraid not to.
