Darryll Jones

“If I can make just one person smile each day, I have done my job!”
Darryll Jones
Wonderfactory Artist, United Kingdom

Darryll Jones (b. 1974), was born in South Africa and worked as a graphic designer in the packaging industry for over a decade, before migrating to the United Kingdom with his family in 2009.

Once in London, Darryll found employment for a major retailer that had him shooting food and farmers all over the English country, and sometimes found himself trapped indoors by the English weather. It is during one of those trips that he accidentally created ‘Eric’ with a Hasbro 6-inch Stormtrooper figure, and over time, has found a sizeable following on Instagram for his pictures and stories of Eric’s adventures.


Eric the trooper is now one of the most well-known toy characters on the internet, with fans from all over the world following his travels and experiences on Instagram. Of late, Darryll has also created other characters to accompany Eric on his adventures. Have a look at Mike the mechanic's visit to Pirelli's 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium in the video below. Darryll now runs a photography studio with a partner, and specialises in visuals works for the beverage industry. In his spare time, Darryll enjoys spending time with his daughters and a cat named Pixi, creating art in his studio and dabbles on the drums.
