Try something like this:

Create your graphic, for instance "mypicture.xpm".  (Pixmap's work great)

Then convert it to a resource at the command line:
 > lazres mygraphicresource.lrs mypicture.xpm

In your code use:

MyGraphic := TPixmap.Create;

in the Initialization section at the end of the unit be sure to add:

{$I mygraphicresource.lrs} // inserts the resource into the unit
