Lost Tokiponian Codex by LaughtonMcCry Lost Tokiponian Codex by LaughtonMcCry
hi, long time no see hum!?
okay. here is a small page of a Mayan codexlike version of the Gilgamesh Epic in tokiponian language and glyphs, that i was tinkering around with.

The picture shows (as the text says) The ancient city of Uruk, of which Gilgamesh was the King.

if you dont know what Toki Pona is, its this: a constructed artificial language that consists of only around 120 words and a nice simple grammar ;]

for more info about it :

tis script? [link]

I do like the look of it, but as conlangs go, I steer clear of minimalism. :P

Well, I think minimalism has a lot to do with art. since a good drawing is always a reduction to the most important aspects.
But you may go as you prefere :]

True enough; it's ametter of taste. As with my image art, my conlangs are intended to seem as real as possible. :)

I've never heard of this before, but it reminds me of Mayan writing which I love. I really like it!
