Just found this
program today, thought it might be of interest to those who are really into embellishing their help files etc.
Basically you can draw and it translates to art, or it also has presets to fiddle around with. You choose the text output it spits out: pure ascii, unicode, etc. If you have a drawing tablet I could potentially see it as something really neat to use to add illustration to books, invitations and so on.
It has a 30-day free thing.
Mac only, at least Yosemite required
