Stone Soup, by Jan Eliot 2002
'Stone Soup'. 

Jan Eliot started her career in comics as an outlet in her busy life as single working mother. One of her graphic influences was Bill Watterson. Her first comic, 'Patience and Sarah', about a single mom and her daughter, ran for five years in several weekly and monthly papers. Her second strip, 'Sister City', also ran for five years in her local paper, The Register-Guard, from Eugene, Oregon, until it was nationally syndicated through Univeral Press Syndicate in 1995 under the new name 'Stone Soup'. At that moment, Jan Eliot quit her job as a copywriter and graphic designer and became a full-time comic artist. 'Stone Soup' (1995-2020) was closely based on her own life, depicting human relationships and the modern family.

Jan Eliot was a strong influence on Barbara Dale.
