Thanks. I really wasn't going for looks. I was trying to stick to simple glyphs (all started with points on a simple grid) and keep each letter so that it could be drawn without lifting up the pen. Then I laid them out schematically. I'm still considering the addition of a couple of affricates /dZ/ and /tS/ with the glyphs being a combination of those parts, and maybe a diacritic or two to show rounding or lack of rounding on vowels so that names can be transcribed more accurately.
