Jan Eliot started cartooning when real life started driving her crazy. Initially published in just one alternative newspaper, Eliot gradually broadened her audience to include millions of readers. Syndicated since 1995, Stone Soup appears in 200 daily newspapers in 6 countries. Based on her own life as a divorced, working mom of two girls, Stone Soup was originally Eliot's form of therapy. As she struggled with too little money, too little time, and too little patience, Eliot chronicled the events and emotions in cartoons, and found a way to laugh at her reality. Though her daughters are now grown and raising their own families, real life continues to inspire her humor, and is the essence of Stone Soup.
