Derby #36: Text As Art

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Frustrated by our frequent prohibitions against text in Derby entries? Well, this week, text is all you can use. But there's a catch: the letters have to form an illustration of some kind. Whether you go the ASCII art route or imitate the lava-lamp lettering of the psychedelic Sixties, get your text into shape. We're not looking for slogan shirts. A "picture" of two or three straight lines isn't what we have in mind. So take warning: the moderation this week will be particularly subjective. If there's any doubt that your text makes a picture, be ready to feel the moderator's axe.
