Stone Soup travels to South Africa

Stone Soup creator Jan Eliot lived in South Africa for three months last year. Jan weaved her experience into a story-line that ran in late May and into June using the Grandmother Evie character to voice her impressions of the country.

The Cape Argus, a Cape Town newspaper, picked up on the story-line and profiles Jan and her trip.

CAPE Town has long prided itself on being an international destination. Now it?s got a boost from US cartoonist Jan Eliot in her Stone Soup comic strip. ?The landscape and the seascapes never ceased to impress me. You have the most beautiful country,? she says.

Eliot visited the city last year and was so taken by it that she?s included it in her comic strip, syndicated to over 300 newspapers across the world. Most of the newspapers are in the US.

You can read the story from the beginning starting May 19 over on
