Remember that as you begin to create your own unique Illustrative Alphabet that you should be aware that each of the 26 letter forms should be interesting in their own right. Visually. Perhaps each letter form should have it's own identity (be a little different from the others yet it should be also be in the same with regards to the family and identifiable as such._
For instance, if you were going to do a Hardware Alphabet then it could be objects found in a hardware store that are relevant to it's context and intention. They are related simply because they are found in the Hardware store and perhaps focuses on tools or implements that people use to construct something.
