Fine Art/Text in art

Question
I need to find works by artists that use text in their artwork, mainly in the form of words which are decorated with an image, for example the word "Zebra" filled in with a zebra skin pattern, or something similar. I know it isn't a very clear description so I have found an example at:

Could you help me with my search, possibly sugesting artists I could search for. Thankyou.
