Amiga disk label

This was one of my amiga backup disk labels from about 1988, so around the time of Zippo Games, Cosmic Pirate and Ironsword.

I always used to draw little characters on my disk labels. This guy even graduated to his own comic strip in the fanzine I co-published at the time, retaining his name of 'backup 2'.

It was always touch and go whether any backup disk would ever load back in again, particularly on the Amiga. Despite making multiple backup copies, it was quite a regular occurrence to completely lose one or more days work to unreadable disks, and have to do it all over again from scratch. Painful.
