Invictus from Khet Smz on Vimeo.

Check out this short film a reader made that was inspired my Invictus comic. Khet Phungnoi is 17-years-old and he made it for a school project. Nice work Khet!

One of the coolest things to come out of Zen Pencils is teenagers telling me that they appreciate poetry a lot more after reading some of my comics. Or that one of my adaptations has helped them understand a poem they always thought was abstract or too difficult to grasp.

To be honest, I was never a big poetry fan either before I started this site and I’ve also grown to appreciate it a lot more after adapting some classics and reading the many poems I get sent. Funny how Zen Pencils is helping me just as much as some of you.

What are some classic poems that you think I should illustrate next?
