The Secret Life of Star War Characters by Darryll Jones
British artist and photographer Darryl Jones claims, “I have toys. They want me to take pictures.” And so he does on his website and on his Instagram. His creative work chronicling the imagined life adventures of various Star War characters, in particular the stormtroopers, is delightful. It is easy to see why he has a large fan base – his tongue in cheek captions and fun photographs make a wonderful combination.
Who knew they had such mundane lives with problems just like everyone else? Although most of us would not have to assemble a fighter from a flatpack!
“New Years resolution 001 – get myself a bigger freekin bathtub”
“Suddenly Eric knew what the foul stench he had smelled a few days earlier was… He also figured out why the cute little puppy had no friends….”
“By the light of the moon they drove… Roads of Cardiff, in and out they wove… In the night unseen… Listening to the freakin dancing queen”
“Off the road again! Stevie had to admit it, he was a bad driver. A bad bad bad driver. “
“Suddenly, right in front of Stevie’s car, was a huge camera lens, in front of an even huger child, man, boy thing.”
