There is, but it's no longer maintained
(http://alumni.dgs.monash.edu.au/~richard/gdmodule/). The module of
choice for creating graphics in Python is the Python Imaging Library
(http://www.python.org/sigs/image-sig/Imaging.html). I have used it
for some small tasks and it works as advertised.

Anyone interested in Web interfaces should have a look at Zope
(http://www.zope.org). All I have used myself is the module
ZPublisher, which is essentially an object-oriented CGI library (but I
promise that once you have used it you don't want to deal with plain
CGI any more).
