Can you link to a picture of the type you would like to create (for those of us not sure what a B-Lymphocyte looks like)? – Loop Space Jun 7 '11 at 8:36
Inkscape? (inkscape.org) – Ignasi Jun 7 '11 at 10:20

There is an illustration of a B-Lymphocyte at the B cell Wikipedia article. You can find general tikz examples at TikZ and PGF examples.

When you know what you want to achieve, consult the TikZ manual which is very well written. If you have further specific questions, do not hestitate to ask here.
