Can I use your cartoons on my presentations or repost them on my own page?
Yes !! Feel free to share and repost the cartoons and illustration just don’t alter the images and reference the source. This means that no text or drawn element should be modified at all (including adding filter and changing colors) and add a clear and visible reference to ‘CellCartoons.net’.

If you post the cartoons on your own page or share them on social media share the love and please tag me and/or link back to my web page or instagram page.
Are there any situations in which using Cell Cartoons is not permitted or allowed?
It is not cool if you try to monetize from the cartoons or claim them to be your own. None of these cartoons should be used to gain profit in any way. If you want to modify any of these cartoons please ask for permission first and make sure the cartoon is clearly referenced. The illustrations and cartoons are protected by a copyright. Contact me if you are unsure of whether or not what you are doing with these cartoons is allowed.

How do you choose the theme or cells for the cartoons?
Most of the cartoons I have created depict immune cells. My background is in immunology so creating immunology related cartoons feels the most natural to me. However, with time I would like to add a bigger variety of cell types to this site. If you have an idea for a cartoon please contact me, I’d love to hear from you!
What program do you use to create the cartoons?
Creating these cartoons is an always evolving process. I started by drawing the cartoons on a piece of paper, scanning it and using Adobe Illustrator to trace it and create a .png file to publish to the website or share on social media. More recently I started using Procreate on iPad pro with an Apple Pencil and again transfer the file to Adobe Illustrator to finalize. As I learn new techniques to create digital art my style might change as well.
