Jester The Troll

On or around August 9th, James Gurney came across an advertisement for Troll Caught Tuna.  He was a immediately intrigued by the concept of fishing Trolls.  Most people don’t know the rich history of Trolls or of their centuries old fishing exploits.  I could dedicated pages to their history, but I can sum up their fishing endeavors with one word - disguise.  Think about any time period in human history and how humans would react to seeing a Troll fishing by the river, out on a boat, or bringing their catch to market?  I’m sure you can draw your own conclusions as to what might happen to the Trolls.  In an attempt to thwart off any knowledge of their activities Trolls would blend in through the clever use of makeup, costumes, and body morphing.  I have decided to depict the disguise used during the Middle Ages - - that of the Jester Troll along with his fishing spear.  Keep in mind that not all Jesters were Trolls, but all Trolls that fished were Jesters.  If you are interested in learning more about the other disguises they adopted throughout time, I encourage you to do your own research.  Modern day researchers need only walk to the nearest lake, river, or marina - - with your “awakened vision” you will easily pick out the Trolls amongst the humans.  Or perhaps they are all Trolls.
