Entertaining An Artist: My latest publication

Entertaining An Artist: Vegan. Wheatfree. Handful!

Embracing the challenge of cooking great vegan food, wheat free too. Plus the even more considerable challenge of An Artist who is something of a handful.

In this affectionately fictionalised ‘cautionary’ tale, Jacky Francis Walker brings something of the gently whimsical feel of Winnie The Pooh to her sometimes confounding, yet always humorous, encounters with an Artist of her acquaintance.

Illustrated with original line drawings by Carolynn de Waal.

Paperback. 120 pages. Published by Bonobo TV. ISBN 978-1907729263

A light, humorous read that 

  • celebrates the challenges and joys of sharing time with a creative person, which can very often be outside the norm
  • gives an insight into the artist’s process (and the marketing of it, despite the ‘best efforts’ of the artist to sabotage this…)
  • Alongside this, it lightheartedly places vegan food, the vegan lifestyle and vegan principles within a daily context for the reader

Perfect, also, for anyone who is a ‘naughty child’ or who is the parent of a ‘naughty child’. You’ll find much to recognise and laugh along with in this book.

“Jacky Francis Walker’s book is a delight to the eyes and a joy for the mind. It does a lot for the taste buds too! ‘Fifty Shades of Great’, it has that classic understated quality that all great English novels have. Everyone will want their own adopted Artist after reading this! Vegan snacks essential!” Tony White, BAFTA winning animator, director, author, lecturer, astrological consultant and creator of MY STAR*CHILD reports, Seattle.
