@YiannisLazarides, can you explain how it would be easy with Lua? Or perhaps point to some other answer?

The basic approach is to define a series of points around a circle, but randomly vary the radius (slightly), then draw a smooth (Bezier) curve through them.

comment put figure at the bottom of the FIRST page
The standard floating insert mechanism won't do it for you in 2 column mode, but you can place it there "by hand". Just put the \includegraphics where you want it without using a figure environment and use captionof package to generate the caption properly.

You could also use Asymptote or Metapost, or any tool that generates output in a form that can be included in LaTeX - which is more or less anything. Both Asymptote and Metapost have good introductions.

comment Editing Tex documents in Drive
To use your Drive folders as local folders you need to install the Drive local client. This is not really a TeX question. See tools.google.com/dlpage/drive/index.html
