“Jackorama! What can I say about Jack Venturo—creator of some of the best, well, no the actual best dioramas I have ever had the pleasure and adventure to behold. He is the reason I attended in the first place but I never quite got wind of his story… This time ‘round, you’d better bet your sweet Bippy it happened” – Jennifer K. Hugus

“I almost forgot to go to one last display (but not really)—booth 209, that of my newfound friend I have met upon entry, Jack Venturo in the guise of “Jackorama”—a veritable festival of dioramas. Though I have loved many displays, this one takes the cake and is the perfect cherry on the proverbial ice cream Sundae that has been today’s lunch, dinner and dessert all in one! Moreover, dioramas have always intrigued me since I was a little girl for their homemade dollhouse appeal and later as an actress for their miniature stage/set emulation. Jack Venturo is not present but his friend and writing partner John is. He informs me that while he and Jack write screenplays, Jack always loved making dioramas as a child. Eventually he started getting recognition for his work and now whenever he finds an action figure, he enjoys creating scenes from various movies surrounding it. My favorites would have to be the scenes featuring Han Solo encased in carbonite, Boba Fett waiting at a bus stop in front of a very active Sarlacc pit and the “Psycho” house mounted on an all-too-organic looking hill.” – Jennifer K. Hugus (The LA Beat)

“Doris Vader. This was by far the highlight of DCon for me. Artist Jack Venturo a.k.a Jackorama had a beautiful sculpture of a more delightful take on our favorite villain. Eye catching, it was, and sadly tagged as “SOLD” You can see more of Jack’s work on his website. Believe it or not, a little birdie told me that Jack is a set designer on Cartoon Network’s Robot Chicken, very suiting given his great work with figurines.”  – Reality & Reverie
