As far as I understand GIL, this is not the focus of the library.
However, you can rely on third-party libraries to do this, for example
http://www.antigrain.com/ (<=2.4 uses a quite liberal license) and
http://www.cairographics.org/ . Both can render to memory buffers which
in turn can be used directly in GIL.
