If this language were for non-humans, I'd say little toeprint/clawprint markings to form each symbol would be nifty. As it is, it'll probably be comprised of deftly-drawn lines of varying thickness (not spectrum of thickness, just binary). Like kanji, each symbol can be a word/concept, instead of just a syllable or letter, and so sentences/phrases can be built as one complex character. Dunno about punctuation - probably simplify it as much as possible.
