Probably a stupid question but I can't help it: if you  
includegraphics them, why not draw them in a graphics program?

I do and save two copies, one in Intaglio for further/future editing  
if necessary and one in cropped pdf for includegraphics. (Intaglio  
remembers to place them in different folders.)

Curious regards
