Add text from mysql to image


I am wondering if anybody knows of a way of pulling some info out of a sql database and adding the results onto an image.
I am running Ubuntu 11.10 and would like to every hour take updated into from a database and put this info onto a jpg image which is also updated every hour. The info is text.
Is there prog out there to do this ?? , At worst a php script would do the trick as well I guess.

Cheers
