First of all, big thanks to Argylefox for letting me use Mesoamerican versions of his characters Max and Phil from his comic Indifferently Evil which is hilarious and should be read at indifferentlyevil.com.

I really like the way the broken speech bubble came out in that last panel. The Maya written language is particularly interesting to me because it had both pictograms and characters that represented spoken syllables. Any given piece of text could be made of of any combination of these types of characters.
The written language allowed so much artistic expression that "scribe," and "artist," were a single word.

How much this type of literary freedom must have confounded anthropologists.

Thanks for reading.

Nah. I found a font pack where each letter is a different pictogram. For that last one I just traced most of one.
