While on the unfortunate topic of stolen art, I suppose I’ll go ahead and ask a 4th of July favor. If you see fireworks with Lackadaisy art on the packaging, please don’t buy it. The art is stolen - no less than 7 different paintings. I’ve known about this for about a year, but so far all attempts to contact the manufacturer/distributor have yielded no response or left me at voice messaging dead ends.
These photos are from someone who spotted them and was kind enough to contact me about it.
Jake’s Fireworks is the name of the company, and they appear to do their own manufacturing in China (which ostensibly means they create their own packaging too).
The product listing is here on their site and in their wholesale catalog.
Please don’t send any well-intentioned emails to them or anything. I’m trying to resolve this without resorting to anger and threatening messages. Jake’s Fireworks distributes all over the place, though, so I’m just putting out a request for anyone who might be in the market for holiday fireworks to not buy any with stolen art on them. =/
