Most of the graphics on these pages were scanned with the Commodore Handy Scanner. They were then converted to geoPaint format, and in many cases, compiled into multi-image geoPaint pages. This was a project which occupied many hours but brought me great enjoyment back in the 1990s. The images came from newspapers, clip books and various other sources. A few were original drawings by my daughter, Jennifer Neely (some of these are found on pages 3 & 6). At first I was content to collect random images and compile them into pages with a specific subject. Then I created some sets of images that had a theme running through several pages, such as the Old West series (on pages 1 & 6) and the Goodykoontz files (on page 2). Then I made some pages that were educational or informational, such as Dinosaurs 1 (on page 1), and Rhinos (on page 3). Images that were not created with the scanner are explained individually.

The Goodykoontz Files:

In 1994 one of my computer friends, Jerry Marano of Binghamton, NY, sent me some photocopies of artwork from an old book, suggesting I might want to scan them.

The items that intrigued and delighted me most were the series of "gestures and attitudes," a series of drawings showing how to assume various poses that would communicate a wide array of meanings. They offered a unique blend of charm and humor (unintended at the time they were created some time around the turn of the century).

The drawings came from "Goodykoontz's Perpetual Calendar and General Reference Manual (A Book for the Millions), 28th Edition," published in 1910. In an autobiographical sketch included in the book we learn that Jasper Goodykoontz was born near Atlanta, Indiana on January 10, 1855, fourteenth of sixteen children. He taught in elementary schools in several states and at Heald's College in San Francisco. The book is made up largely of photo-engravings of his own pen drawings.

The Frank Preivo Files:

Back in the early 1990s Frank Preivo, of the Catalina Commodore Computer Club in Tucson, created many pages of high quality art. Frank did these drawings by hand using geoPaint.
