Hello Joshua,

I wrote something exactly for this a while back, but never got around to
publish it. I just uploaded it to Launchpad for you:

There's a README file telling you how to use it. Basically it's just his:

  $ render-text-to-image \
    --font='Georgia' \
    --size=48 \
    --text-color='#eee' \
    --background-color='#000' \
    --text='Hello, world!' \

It also supports transparency, margins, and some simple markup.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any comments!
