Writing system made just for you!

75


75 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

I will make you a writing system for a language I have made for you, a language you have made, or for you to use instead of the Roman alphabet.

Your writing system can be used to write journals, notes to your friends, or even in D&D campaigns and art (as long as it's not commercial!)

I can make horizontal or vertical scripts. I can make alphabets, abjads, abuguidas, syllabaries, or logographic systems.

The writing system will include up to 50 characters. If you want more than that, just trade for another unit of this listing. I have a limit of two units per month, but if you ask beforehand I can set it higher to accommodate your needs.

No commercial uses, please! (If you want to use a writing system I make commercially, I can do that but I need to be paid with actual money.)

You will receive, by email, a scan or good quality photo of a hand written sample of your writing system as well as a chart of the letters/characters in your writing system and how they are used.

Please allow at least two weeks for the creation of your writing system. It can take a while to create a coherent system, so allowing a longer time lets me give you a better quality result. Thank you!

Training & Qualifications


I have made many scripts and many languages. I'm a linguistics major in my senior year.

Andi is a great artist. He sent me two beautiful Mandal depictions of the phrase I am grateful. They are big files so they will look great if I decide... to print them. Andi went out of his way to make sure I was happy with the design. He followed through with everything he said he would do! I recommend Andi to everyone! show more

About Andi Greynolds

I have recently finished a degree in linguistics. I have been conlanging (creating languages) since I was 15 and that's why I studied linguistics. I was on the dean's list for two years. I was pre...sident and founder of the knitting and crochet group at my university for all 4 years, so I knit and crochet frequently and I teach other people how to. I sell my knitted items on Etsy and my knitting patterns on Etsy and Ravelry (some are free on Ravelry!) My mom is an artist (polymer clay, origami, fine arts) and I take after her in that way. I love art. I paint (oils, acrylics, digital), knit, crochet, draw (digital, charcoal/conte, pencil), I do photography (iphone, fancy digital cameras, b&w film cameras, photograms, pinhole cameras), I create languages and writing systems (yes, that's art!), and many other media that I don't use as frequently, such as polymer clay, origami, and other miscellaneous crafts. I've studied 6 languages in school (Spanish, French, Latin, German, Chinese [Mandarin], and Japanese) and I'm trying to learn Cornish (Kernewek Kemmyn) right now because it's my heritage language and it was dead for around 100 years but was revived around 100 years ago, which makes learning it so much cooler. In fact, I even have a blog where I post words daily and will sometime soon (hopefully) get around to posting lessons and the like and integrating that with Memrise and Quizlet. I collect language and linguistics books (I currently own over 500!). I want to write novels that include my conlangs. That's pretty much my life goal. I retain the rights of everything I create unless I specifically state otherwise. Mostly this just means I can use what I make for you as examples of my work or I can sell items with it printed on from my zazzle shop (though I won't do that for names or anything too personal) Instagram: @ArtByTekoro Etsy: Tekoro Art Portfolio (in progress): TekoroPortfolio.tumblr.com Ravelry: Heylola2 Conlang tumblr (hasn't been updated much recently): heylola2s-conlangs.tumblr.com Cornish Blog: kernewek-kemmyn.tumblr.com Zazzle shop: zazzle.com/tekoro*show more
