    To do it effectively, you need to create outlines and manually move anchors and paths. – Scott Feb 12 at 2:47

What about using Make with Warp, and the "Arc" style, then modifying it by editing the nodes and curves of the warp? Although to be honest, it might take just as long as drawing the outlines manually from scratch.

I tried it, and it involved quite a bit of messing around for a less than perfect result. Obviously if you have more time to spend tweaking . . . then go for it!

Another option is to create outlines of the type (Type > Create Outlines), and then move the anchors, paths , and handles on the letter itself. This takes more work but can offer a great deal more control.

Here's a quick and dirty attempt:

In any event, some manual alteration is going to be required. There's really nothing in Illustrator which will distort to match a specific shape every time for every shape.
