Creative Prompt #73: Glyph

A glyph (pronounced /??l?f/) is an element of writing. It is a slightly vague term, but a more precise definition might be an individual mark on paper or another written medium that contributes to the meaning of what is written there. A grapheme is made up of one or more glyphs. (Wikipedia)

See the Creative Prompt page if you have questions about this project.

Post the direct URL (link) where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of this post. I would really like to keep all the artwork together and provide a way for others to see your work and/or your blog.

The Creative Prompt Project, also, has a Flickr group, which you can join to  post your responses. I created this spot so those of you without blogs and websites would have a place to post your responses.

In World of Warcraft, Glyphs are spell and ability enhancements created by scribes. Until used, they
are not soulbound and can be traded or sold.

Mathwire states that “glyphs are a pictorial form of data collection. You might be reminded of the term “hieroglyphics” and think about early picture writing.   Different forms of glyphs are used in many medical situations to quickly record data about a patient in pictorial form.   For example, a dentist records cavities on a picture of teeth.   A chiropractor might record injuries or muscle aches on a skeletal picture. In these cases, a “picture is worth a thousand words” and the glyph allows a doctor to more quickly record and analyze the data.
