Koala Pad Graphics
In the mid-1980s I bought a Koala Pad, which was a wonderful touch pad for the Commodore 64. It came with Koala Paint, a great little paint program for the C64. The pad came with a black plastic pen, and had two buttons at the top. You could also use a finger or other items on the pad, but I found the Koala Pen was the best implement. The above graphic is what I like to call a "self portrait". ie: it's a portrait of the Koala Pad done on a Koala Pad.
Koala Paint, a fairly simple pixel-painting program, allowed me to get quite creative, and I drew many, many graphics using it. Some were just skteches, or fun stuff. Some were plans for game screens or title screens. Some were interpretations of cartoon characters, and album covers.
A selection is available for viewing here: (Keep in mind, a PC has a square pixel aspect-ratio. The Commodore 64's aspect ratio was taller than wide, so these images will appear squat to you. In the above graphic, I have the browser view it in its correct ratio)
