Any comments would be of interest. It looks like it might be influenced by the Berber alphabet used by Tuaregs, but I'm not very familiar with that writing system. The only resemblance I see to an alphabet I'm familiar with is that the "w" looks a little like the Arabic "waw". I don't see any resemblances to any Roman letters anywhere in it.
