Gimp has filters that can change a picture into a line drawing.

I'd place my bet on some vector graphics app, like Inkscape.

To get that kind of result you'd first draw the picture with a couple of lines, the create the text objects somewhere else and finally use the Pattern along Path-extension to map the text to follow your drawing's lines.

edit: that would actually require some hand-tweaking to get the color shades & text sizes to work nicely. I'm sure there's some way you could get all that to work automatically, but It's been a while since I've done anything complicated with Inkscape. :/

I'm with mcduck. I don't think there is a program that will do that by itself. It looks like the work of a talented artist. They probably first made the picture and then mapped the text to it.

That is really a nice piece of art. Can anyone tell us what is it called (if it has a name).
Also how exactly can this be done ?
Has anyone here ever done this before ?

Ok i found something
These type of paintings are called typography portraits.
Here (http://boominthebox.blogspot.com/2009/10/typography-art.html) are some very beautiful typographies. Although I still can not figure out how you make them.
The same blog (http://boominthebox.blogspot.com/2009/10/typography-portraits.html) has this image too.

OK Here you go
1. Photoshop (http://abduzeedo.com/super-easy-typographic-portrait-photoshop)
2. Photoshop (http://abduzeedo.com/photoshop-quick-tips-5-typographic-portrait) again.
I havent tried these till now. I will start by installing ps on wine. You guys give it a try meanwhile see if you get something as attractive.
