In today’s Daily Create assignment, we were given the opportunity to depict what we thought was the “troll under the bridge”. Though there are many different characteristics of what people think a troll is, this type of figure has always stuck out to me.
I remember reading several books as a child about trolls under bridges and most of the colored pictures had a figure very similar to this one. It looks a lot like a farmer but has very long ears and a long nose making it not human.
I had a lot of fun doing this assignment as I went through old books and actually pulled up a book that had a troll in it that looked very similar to this picture. I ended up sitting down and rereading this little children’s book a I hadn’t heard the story in years. An excuse to read little books again and take me back to my childhood? I’ll take it.
