Jan Eliot

Jan Eliot was a harried working mom struggling to support two young daughters when she first began drawing cartoons based on her experiences. Members of her family, plus friends and coworkers, have been models for her characters, making the "Stone Soup" family seem very real to its readers. Eliot's work is exhibited in the Charles Schulz Museum and The San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum. Now internationally syndicated, she cartoons full time.
