43218843_10216505656532028_7278575192702451712_nYou can buy this piece of stock art, for as little as $1 this month as part of a promotion. We have a promotion running all month, 31 pieces of monstrous stock art, one a day until all are at on sale culminating on the 31st for Halloween.

This piece depicts a troll, bursting from the earth, perhaps in a fantasy Western setting.

The desert troll is a seasonal creature, living far from the traditionally trollish homes of swamps and marshes, and adapted for that environment. The desert troll emerges and feasts when the rains come to the desert, storing moisture and fat in its capacious belly and wart-like growths, as well as the thick mucous that covers their flesh. As the rains come to an end they find a patch of earth and bury themselves in a crust of mucous to await the next rainy season. On occasion, alerted by the patter of hooves or the rumbling of wagon wheels, they will opportunistically burst forth from their hibernation in a feeding frenzy, to supplement their stores until the rain comes again.
