While I never know how an alphabet looks until I see a writing sample
(the *original* Chevraqis script looked fine in design until I wrote it
vertically and discovered it looked yucky vertically as opposed to
horizontally), I like the shapes.  How did you get the shapes to come out
so regularly?  My own motor control is lousy with my art tablet.  :-p

Looks nice.  Only other comment I have is that semi-dyslexic (well, not
"for real," but I might as well be) may confuse letters with their
up-down mirror images.  This is sometimes problematic in Korean as well,
since nearly *all* the vowels are rotations of 90k degrees from one set,
and it can be confusing, especially if you're not awake.
