There is no problem with your workflow. However, some people do 
prefer to deal with some, or most, graphics from within LaTeX, using 
tools like pstricks, xy-pic, metapost. I write lots of graphics for 
my teaching work and use pstricks and related packages for precise 
mathematical drawing (and perfect integration with LaTeX - think 
fonts in graphics labels, for instance). I wouldn't trade that for 
anything else. I own a copy "The LaTeX Graphics Companion", which has 
a whole chapter on pstricks, but I rely mostly on the pstricks 
manual, which, as a matter of fact, is included in Gerben's 
distribution, so is there already on my (and on your) mac.
