I would like to make a bar graph that looks more like an drawing then a graph. Any ideas on software?

I have a series of data with three columns of information:
-elevation range (categorical)
-total area of each class
-area of a subsection of each area
I have made a graph that looks like a standard horizontal bar graph, however I would like to make a more 'cartoony' graph that looks like a crosssection of a mountain, kinda like this crude ascii art
This data is to show that the higher that you go up on the mountain the greater the percentage of protected land there is and I think this may be an effective way of communicating this to my audience.
Any ideas of how to make this graph easily? I have some access to Deltagraph and other graphing software as well as Illustrator.
