Question About "Pan Lengua" and "Neo Criollo"

Over the years I've read a couple of references to the Argentine painter
Alejandro Xul Solar, who was active about 1920-1950.  Many of Xul Solar's
paintings contain ideographic and alphabetic symbols, even whole phrases,
apparently from three conlangs he created during his life.  Two of these
conlangs are named "Pan Lengua" and "Neo Criollo."  I'm interested in
knowing more about these languages and seeing examples.  Does anyone on the
list know anything about Xul Solar's languages?  Langmaker doesn't have any
entries, and Google and the other search engines seem to only turn up sites
about his paintings, with no mention of his conlangs.
