From Lil Abner bringing us the antics of the characters in the comic, to the rustic hillbilly outhouses and shacks in this hillbilly clipart, we’ve been fascinated with all things to do with country people and the out of the way places they live.
Learning new skills that the hill people used routinely in their everyday lives and appreciating the nature around them, hillbilly clipart helps to evoke the country life of the unique characters.
Raised without any contact with the outside world, their insular lives were built around neighbors, surviving on what vegetables they could raise and wild animals they hunted or trapped.
Domesticated animals like chickens and pigs provided meat and other products.
The hill dwellers traded eggs and handmade patchwork quilts for what they couldn’t grow or make themselves.
The mountain people excelled in carving, making musical instruments such as the Appalacian dulcimer and banjo, weaving on primitive looms, spinning wool into fine yarn for knitting and many other crafts.
With such a concentration of handicrafts and music, which was also a big part of their lifestyle, hillbillies were talented at getting their amusement from simple things.
Here’s where we pay tribute to the hillbilly lifestyle, with some great hillbilly clipart.
