When drawing character J alone using font VeraIt.ttf, only some pixels
are drawn on the left!

The problem looks to be in the font definition of char J.
The char is shifted a lot on the left !

Here is the sample.
You can try drawing '-J-' and 'J-'

from PIL import Image, ImageDraw, ImageFont, ImageTk
import PIL

font=ImageFont.truetype('VeraIt.ttf', 36)
x, y=font.getsize(c)
print font.getsize(c), font.font.getsize(c)
img=Image.new('RGB', (border+x+border, border+y+border), (255, 255, 255))
draw.rectangle((border, border, x+border-1, y+border-1),
outline=(0,0,0), fill=(255, 255, 255))
draw.text( (border, border), c, fill=(0, 0, 0), font=font)
del draw

Best regards.
