Not April 1 yet, so I guess you are really wanting an answer, eh?
Why all graphical? Find yourself a font building tool -- if you don't care
too much about quality there are some cheap/free ones. Put the shapes for
your chars in Unicode's Private Use Area (or, essentially the same, make
it a symbol font.) Finally get yourself Keyman (www.tavultesoft.com) and
build yourself a keyboard layout, and type to your heart's content --
using Notepad, WordPad, Word, or whatever you want...
