I think we can agree that I was overthinking it, although I always had in mind that truth, that the director must be stupid not to get it. But it was right decision to ask here, I learn something every time.

The question was great it's always good to know how to write something in. And there were multiple options. Which will you go with?

But by overthinking it I mean, get it in there and stop worrying about what the director will do.

I'll go with mlesemann's advise: "Below the drawing is the top edge of what appears to be writing." It just describes exactly and perfectly what the audience see! It is the way I also think. I try to describe exactly the scene not giving directions, but my mind stuck on that part.

Cool man. To ease your paranoia, when you sell the script for millions, just call up the director and let him know that he can't show the letters.

Nah nothing new there for me.
I learned something from this thread though - don't break the 4th wall in a script
