The Commodore Amiga was awash with copied video game disks in the '90s.

If you went to a car boot sale there was always a few dodgy geezers selling copied disks out of a cardboard box on a stall in the corner of a field.

Some say that piracy was a major contribution to the eventual demise of the Commodore Amiga.

I loved my Commodore Amiga 600 and I made a habit of buying my original games from Special Reserve which was a cool mail-order video games shop.

The longer I owned my Amiga though the more I began to get given the latest games via the playground economy of the '90s and eventually I had some classic games on copied disks and I also ended up having a copy of X COPY which always amused me that my copy of X COPY was a copy!

Thinking back to this time led me to think about how I used to write the names of the games on my disk labels and how I used to like to make crude labels that nearly created the facade of the real label on the original game disk.


In this doodle that I created, I'm trying to capture the feeling of a 90's me crafting a
hasty label on my Verbatim blank disk in order to accommodate my version of
Championship Manager on it.


Hopefully, I've captured this, let me know what you think...

(I used Paper Mate Ink Joy gel pens and a 2H and a 2B pencil along with an Oxford Black n Red Notebook (A5) )
