Hi. I am doing research on rural American culture. I am working on a project. I know shotguns are commonly associated with hillbillies and rifles are commonly associated with rednecks. What firearms are commonly associated with good ol' boys?

IS a shotgun a hillbillies preferred weapon of choice, and a shotgun a redneck's? If not what are they?

Please help. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
I think they do a lot of pillow fighting, a lot of the profession pillow fighting circuit hails from there.

@izzythepush,
I was talking about FIREARMS and/or other types of REAL weapons. A pillow isn't a real weapon.

@farmerman,
BTWyou are sorta guilty of stereotyping people of Appalachia why not do some homework about Appalachia and its history, settlement, culture, isolation, religions and more.
Youre asking focused questions with an inherent assumption that your questions are even valid.

If youre writing a graphic novel, youve got a ways to go .

I'm writing cartoons and comics for KIDS. If I am using stereotypes who cares? I want to make money. Cartoons, especially kids' cartoons (and some comics) thrive on stereotypes and caricatures.

I don't really care about that and I didn't ask you about that.

Again WHO CARES? Speedy Gonzales is seen as a Latino stereotype and the Latino community likes him.

That's why he wasn't dropped from Space Jam 2 which is coming out soon.

@JGoldman10,
Do you have an agent yet? Maybe an agent can spnd som time with you and explain what codes are involved in cartoon novels, especially when you announce that theyre for kids.

I did commercial and political cartooning in my past and I still do free-lancing.
\It sounds like you are fixated on a very narrow focus of topics. If you want to make it more interesting an fun (which often translates to success), you should expand your horizons to kep many points of view and many livelihoods. I did cartooning for a rural farm news and I used to get all kinds of hate mail and love mail. BOTH WERE LOVED by the editors because they derive from the same point SOMEBODY IS READING.

I used my rural cartooning based on Mark Twain when he edited a western agricultural news and he purposely fucked up his instructions to his readership.
Like picking pumpkins from trees.

People wrote all kinds of nasty letters but readership soared.

I dont think you really want any advice fom experience I think youre just looking for people to underpin your POV and thus bolster your ego.

Good Luck though. I can tell you that cartooning is like anything else, highly competitive and often luck plays with you or against you. I hired an agent quite late in the game but he's been worth her contractual fees.

@JGoldman10,
I scanned the "My Armoury" site and agree with several good points. One of which is that you should acquire (through ABE BOOKS or some other mail order site for used books) The "FOXFIRE BOOKS" Series. I think theres about 15 different volumes , Also Id look at "tools that built America" by Eric Sloane (He was an artist AND a writer of history of tool, buildings etc)

Well , in my travels as a geologist, I picked up tips and topics that I entered into my "ideas journals" almost every day. I used many o these ieas in my art work.
The "rule" of writing or cartooning WHAT YOU KNOW, is still a rule that aint been found wanting. I still red the cartoons in New Yorker for their not so subtle spin on URBAN LIFE. Once or twice they try to stick in a country cartoon and it often falls flat because it was obvious the cartoonist had no idea of what he spoke.

Again, good luck, cartooning can be fun and stressfull at the same time. Ive always tried to maintain a "heads up" on DEADLINES by keeping a few works ahead. Although sometimes it doesnt work especially if the eds all of a sudden come up with a smartass idea that they wanna inclue in their next on-line news and youve got a day deadline and youve got a big mining rport due the same time.

TIME is what you seem to be unfriendly with. ALL IDEAS have a "sell-by date". Icame up with ideas on some solar energy cartoons and jotted em down to work on over the nxt month. The very same idea cartoon was thought of an published by another cartoonist and I lost that one by not jumping on it.

Its hard doing it free lance/prt time.

PS. I bought my 45-70 bear rifle at a "hillbilly gunshop" in Charleston W Va and I did it after seeing a movie about a game control agent in the Wind River Mtns.

He’s been told that countless times. This is where research is just another word for procrastination. Over ten years ago he was “ researching” street gangs which came to nothing. This is no different.

@izzythepush,
I suppose, but I still like to see new talent in cartooning and illustration.
I like to see talented artists who acquire graphic skills, not the other way around. Puter graphics are too easy to see and they lack something.(except for labels)
Did anyone tell him to keep copious IDEA JOURNALS ? I hope he picks up on that. Im always editing and adding crap in the ideas notebooks

@farmerman,
He can draw alright. I don’t know what anyone has told him. I do know that Rebel of NJ has complained about providing the same information, and being asked the same questions over and over again.

The only person he seems to listen to is Jimmy Swaggart.

FYI, I have been working on getting some art done in my spare time. My only issue is getting pics of it saved to my laptop.

@izzythepush,
FYI, I have been working on getting some art done in my spare time. I am trying to get something developed. One of the issues I am having right now is getting pics of my work saved to my laptop. I still need a new printer.

This is the least I can do until I learn the art programs I need to know how to use and until I can get everything I need to actually get some comics and animation produced and showcased.

I signed up for a voice over training program online recently. I need to get myself a voice over mic and other stuff so I can turn my den into a sound studio.

I used the distractions that were brought about from the Covid-19 pandemic and crisis last year as an excuse to not to get anything really developed.

I was planning on getting a bunch of art pieces showcased on Deviantart and Newgrounds last year but then my printer conked out on me.

I have a DeviantArt account that is over a decade old and all I have to show for my work are two cartoon pieces I published on there.

I only have a few art pieces published on Newgrounds also.
