I'm not sure what you think that line is doing, but it probably
doesn't do what you think it does.

try changing the Image.new call to

    self.pilim = Image.new( "1", self.image_size, 0 )

instead.

it's a terminology confusion: for historical reasons, Tkinter distinguishes between
bitmaps and images (this separation comes from the X window system).  Bitmap-
Image creates an image.

changing to create_image should fix the problem.

(if you're doing an image viewer, you may want to use PhotoImage
instead of BitmapImage, btw).
