Making letters.

This has been on my mind for ages. 

To make my own personal alphabet seems to be what I'm going to do for a while now. The norwegian alphabet contains three more letters compared to the english one, so I had to make my own æ ø å. I believe the english language do have the sounds of our extras though.

Right now I'm in the beginning phase, so I'm not sure how to make them. The a-card is something I did to try out some thoughts. I do have to rethink a bit because some of the letters are much wider than the rest. The w and æ are the widest.
It was quite a job to prepare the letters. I cut out letters with a tool, quick cut, draw around them and then go to the copymachine. I enlarged them to 400% of original size.
 I'll probably be testing and planing a bit for a few days.
The other night I couldn't resist ordering some new color pencils, watersoluble, so now I can't wait till they show up. It'll take 2-3 weeks until I'll have them here, so in the meantime I can practice stretching my patience muscle.
What's on your desk this week?
