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 Hasbro, Sanrio's Hello Kitty, 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!"
