My close friend Brian recently had a baby girl, and I thought that making an alphabet book for her would be an awesome gift. However, I hadn't put digital pen to digital paper until her 1st birthday was coming up. In reality, I meant to start it earlier (I really did), but there were things out of m…

Thanks to Jess for the inspiration for this comic. You know who you are.

I really enjoyed drawing this comic. The hairstyle for the woman is certainly something I've never done before. I don't even know if it's possible, but I suppose that's the fun of drawing, isn't it? The inspiration came from a…

DOUBLE UPDATE: Comments back up again. Thank you for your patience.

Hey there. It's Jan again. I've activated a comments plugin. Right now, I only have it activated for the Afterthoughts. However, I could very much see it on the comic pages.

A problem I could see is that the home page comments wo…

Hello, and welcome to a Magic: the Gathering prerelease report. For this report, I'll be discussing my deck used for the Shadows over Innistrad prerelease on April 2nd. (Well, at least the one I went to.)

In case you're in the dark, a prerelease event basically involves you opening up 6 packs, and m…

Apologies about the missed Friday update. Will this comic make it up to you?

This comic epitomizes what Drifters with Pencils is all about. A weird situation that probably would never happen, combined with a joke that probably I only like. Also included is talking about sandwiches. I'm all about san…

Man, it took more time that it should have to come up with a pun for the comic.

New comic for today. I rather like the idea, but I don't really like the execution of it too much. It kinda looks weird for me, in a way I can't explain that well...

The idea's been in my head for a little bit now. It a…

Don't you wish these opening puns were better?

Today's comic is rather special. For a couple of reasons.

The largest reason is that this comic is exactly the same as the one that appeared in the Gauntlet paper for the University of Calgary, minus the white space between the panels. You could say th…

Spoilers here.

Late comic today. Was pretty busy today. Hopefully will get back on track Friday. Sorry.

Quick note for the comic: Capes are kinda difficult to shade. Just sayin'.

This remaster is like none other.

Usually, these afterthoughts are quite short. However, I'd like to point out a few odd things about this one for today. Hopefully, you find them a bit interesting.

First, the order of operations changed with this one. Usually, I "pencil" in the characters, getting…

Normally

comic

So you want to hear a secret about this comic?

I don't like it.

When I came up with the "Normally, Yes" idea, I kinda liked the thought of it. However, I never really gave the surrounding words much thought. The first panel and the last panel I feel could be a lot better. However, I just can't thi…
