I don't know much about postscript drawing, but is it possible that it 
wouldn't work because of TextMate using pdflatex instead of plain latex?

In that case you might want to play around with the Shell variable TEX 
in TextMate. You should try setting it to "latexmk.pl"[1] or "latex".
This will cause TextMate to use that command as the latex command 
(latexmk.pl is included in the distribution of TextMate).

To set that variable, go to TextMate's preferences, select the Advanced 
tab and then click on the Shell Variables button. Changes take effect
