Well, seems like I inverted yesterday’s Inktober prompt with today’s prompt. Hopefully if I invert them again balance will be restored and the universe will not collapse.
@ice I LOVE this series 🖤
@neauoire Thanks a lot :) I'm also gathering them in a thread on my Toki Pona forum: https://tokipona.lectronice.com/d/18-taso-pimeja-sitelen-inktober-2020
@ice These are GREAT!!
@dualhammers Thanks, glad you like them :) I'm enjoying the process a lot, thinking about what to write and how to write it takes as much time as actually drawing it, it's quite a meditative thing.
@ice mi kama sona e toki pona. sitelen sina li pona tawa mi. pona!
@milofultz sina pona a!
@ice you've really been tempting me to get into this style of toki pona
@flip Haha, glad to hear this. It's an interesting alternate way to visualize and to think Toki Pona. For legibility, you have to make a few choices, and you can convey a specific mood that regular letters or glyphs cannot, depending on the order of the different parts, the way they show up above or below each other, how you draw them...
I've barely scratched the surface though, even if it's very helpful to enhance my understanding of the language.
@ice I’ve been thinking about illuminated documents and how a sophisticate sitelen sitelen document would make for terrific visual art
@flip Ah yes, it could look really great. This reminds me of nasin nasa, if you don't know it, it's equally weird and awesome: https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/nasin-nasa/sike-noka/viewer?title_no=303628&episode_no=1
@flip When I first stumbled upon it, I couldn't even read regular toki pona, now I can read sitelen sitelen and I haven't checked it out again yet. Time to re-read it, haha!
I particularly like this one. :)
@ice I think I said it already, but these are awesome
@whtrbt Thanks a lot, glad you like them :)
