About

Handcrafting creepiness through pencils & pixels

Growing up a 70's latchkey kid, Miami Beach Artist John Lacko was raised on a steady diet of pirated Japanese cable game shows, evil cartoon monster movies and pixel chomping Atari foes; fueled by an abundant supply of sugary snacks. This turned out to be fertile ground for his avid imagination.

Handcrafting his artwork through pencils & pixels for 15 years, John spends his days constructing computer characters for indie magazines & national retail chains. His nights are spent tinkering in his garage studio hideaway until the wee hours of the morning. You can find him making-up new colors and setting design trends with his social network of international friends.

Channeling his techniques in illustrative story telling and design thinking, John has worked with clients including Vans Warp Tour, Fangoria Magazine, Fuse TV, Adidas, XM Radio, Bravo TV's "Project Runway," Alternative Press Magazine and Macy's Department Store...

Although he likes to tell people he's telepathic, it's best to contact John by phone or email. Call for a quote or just drop him an email to say "hello!"

► SHIPPING - U.S. DOMESTIC SHIPPING ORDERS

► RATES:

• All U.S. domestic shipping charges are credited back to you = FREE!
This includes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands & Guam. In
the event an item must be returned, the refunded amount will have this
shipping fee deducted from the total amount refunded.

• Most U.S. domestic shipments will be mailed via USPS in a Flat Rate
Priority Mail envelope which includes built in tracking of your package.
Smaller items under a few ounces (such as stickers or decals) will be
mailed in a standard envelope.

► TRANSIT TIMES:

• The delivery times are in reference to the time spent in transit (once
your order has left my studio). This time does not include the 1-2
business day processing time.

• All packages shipped domestically in the continental U.S. via Priority
Mail Flat Rate Packages will usually take between 2 - 5 days for delivery
once shipped. Priority Mail Flat Rate Packages includes delivery
confirmation and tracking. Standard mail deliveries vary by location and
can take as long as 7-10 days.

• Packages destined for locations outside the continental U.S. (Alaska,
Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Guam) may take longer to
deliver depending on the specific location of the consumer. These
packages travel through a different network than those shipped within
the contiguous 48 states. A majority of non-continental parcels will
deliver within 10 business days however, a small percentage may
take longer. Therefore, we ask that you please allow up to 20 business
days from the processing date for delivery.

► TRACKING NUMBERS:

• When you place an order you’ll receive a confirmation email, as well
as an email when I ship. U.S. domestic orders will receive a tracking
number. I only ship US Postal Service. Don’t panic if you receive a
tracking number and the link isn’t working immediately. If the tracking
number is not working, occasionally USPS only tracks at delivery.

• Once the tracking # posts "delivered" on USPS.com, that means
that package has been delivered. I am NOT responsible for LOST
or STOLEN items.

► INSURANCE / SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION:

• If insurance is not purchased I am NOT liable for items being lost or
damaged during transport.

• Shipping insurance and signature confirmation are additional costs
and available upon request. All fees associated with shipping insurance
and signature confirmation are the responsibility of the buyer to pay. If
you would like to purchase insurance and/or a signature confirmation on
your package, please contact me prior to the shipment of your package
or during check out of your item. I will send you a separate invoice for
any additional postal services you require. Shipments will NOT be sent
until all payments are made for additional postal services.

• If there is an issue with your order that is my personal error, such as an
incorrect item delivered or "SHIP TO" mistake I will replace or exchange
it at no cost to you which will include shipping fees.

► SHIPPING - INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ORDERS

RATES:

• All International Non-U.S. orders are shipped via USPS First-Class
International Package(s). Costs are calculated based on weight and
distance and are reflected on individual item pages. Smaller items under
a few ounces will be mailed in a standard envelope such as stickers or
decals.

► TRANSIT TIMES & TRACKING:

• Transit times varies by location. Please use times as a general guide:
- Shipping times to EUROPE, UK, AUSTRALIA & ASIA 10-14 working
days (holidays + occasions might take up to 14-20 days)
- Shipping times to SOUTH AMERICA 21-30 working days
(holidays + occasions might take up to 1 month)

• If you have not received your order within 5 weeks of the shipping
confirmation please contact me at hello[at]lackoillustration.com

• I DO NOT provide tracking or insurance for international orders.
The cost of shipping internationally with tracking and insurance is
cost prohibitive. 

• If you would like your USPS First-Class International Package to be
sent via Registered Mail, please contact me before you check out and
I will send you a separate invoice.

• I can provide a "Certificate of Mailing" receipt as proof of shipment
on any First Class USPS orders. 

► CUSTOMS FEES:

• On rare occasions, there’s a chance that your order can be delayed
by your country’s customs regulations. Please check with your local
Customs Office for more information.

• Packages are shipped DDU, which means customs fees (taxes, duties,
processing fees, brokerages fees, etc.) may be charged upon delivery
and required to obtain your order. I do not collect the VAT, duties and/or
taxes and cannot predict what your particular charges may be.

• These fees are NOT included in your shipping charges.

• I am not able to mark orders as "gifts" because this is a retail shop.

• I do not issue any refunds for customs fees, shipping, or the cost of
your order should you refuse to pay the customs fees. Lacko Illustration
has no way of estimating customs fees, taxes, duties, etc. so please do
not ask me to do so - I don't have this information. Please contact your
local customs office if you need to know more.

► PACKING:

• Small prints & sticker orders are shipped via USPS with standard
postage in a flat heavy card backed 5.0" H x 7.0" W envelope. Larger
prints are shipped in postal tubes. T-shirts and other clothing are sent
in large USPS or standard envelopes. All items are packaged securely
so it will arrive in perfect condition.

► PRODUCT APPEARANCE 

• I love taking pictures of my products so you will always find pictures
of our actual items on all of my listings. The print quality you see is
the print quality you get! Digital artwork is shown in some listings to
display design or artwork in full view.

• The colors that appear on your screen of the product photography
(artwork & merchandise) will vary on every computer monitor.
Variations in monitor settings effects tones / hues of colors of the
actual image. Products have been listed with the correct PMS colors.
For accurate color matching please refer to a Pantone Matching
System Swatch Book for exact color matching. Please feel free to
contact me if you have a question about the colors in a product sold
here or if the PMS colors are not displayed on a listing.

• Screen tees shown in listings may vary slightly from the photos
displayed due to screen variations in the hand silk screen production.
This variation is due to the custom handcrafted nature of the printing
and help to make each one unique. All pieces are created by hand,
so no two items are identical. All my tees are professionally inked
and pressed and should hold up well to normal machine washing
and drying. Turn all printed tees inside out when laundering for best
results.
