  hey!! I am also making a hieroglyphic conlang,, i have finally found someone who does too
  I am really happy at this moment, I'm still working on it
  I made it because one day when we was informed that we'll have a quiz
 at school, and I wasn't prepared yet for it, so since our quiz' questions were
taken only from a story in our book I had an idea of inventing pictures for me
to use as a guide so from looking at it I'll remember the sequences of story
until I get serious with it and started creating a dictionary for it I am
inspired with the egyptians way of constructing the hieroglyphs but it has a
touch of egyptian demotic writing..I was in 3rd yr. high school when I started
it, now I'm in 1st yr. college 2 yrs. had past and I'm still stuck in
constructing it, because of getting busy in my studies.. pls. reply to this
e-mail "Cunetois","Tamrazi"<<way of saying "thank you" from my two conlangs I
had finished constructing

I had a simplistic pictographic language with my best friend when we were children, for a while. Who knows whether we used it for a day or a week, but not long, I'm sure. We were playing pretend involving our village being attacked by raiders, so it had symbols for man and woman (I'm afraid these two were just the Venus and Mars glyphs), dead man and dead woman (Venus and Mars deflated), kill (a sword coming down on a deflated person), fire, temple, and probably a lot that I've forgotten, as I believe there were at least three sheets of paper full which I still have somewhere. I think I was partially inspired by a brief treatment (school handout? Children's magazine item?) of some sort of Plains Indian pictographs.
