Author Scott Hansen says,"When I was speaking to Leo about finding an illustrator for my first children's book, he couldn't stop glowing about his talented son. When I contacted Jack, and conveyed my ideas for the illustrations, I could tell that he shared the same "adult-child" exuberance of his father. Those qualities broke through in the very first character sketches that Jack sent to me. There is no question that Jack captured the excitement and wonder that I had hoped to see in the eyes of my characters."
Jack studied psychology and art at Cal State Northridge and later moved back to Chicago to complete his studies at Roosevelt University. Jack has been drawing and painting from an early age. He has exhibited and sold pieces at The Majestical Roof Gallery in Pasadena, CA. and at various group shows in California and the Midwest.
Jack is currently working as a job coach with LD/BD students at Glenbrook South and North High Schools. He and his dog Siri make their home in Evanston, Illinois. For more of Jack's artwork, visit his website at: jackbenvenuti.com
