    Hi Elliot! Love your cartoons, would like to use some of them in my blog on Medium if that’s possible?

    1. Timo Elliott Avatar

      Anine, please go ahead!


    Hello, Timo:

    The style and quality of the ART in some of your cartoons is delightful to me, particularly the AI cartoons! They appear to be so painstakingly wrought! Did you draw the illustrations yourself or is there someone else who has this phenomenal talent? In any case, I am gobsmacked by them! Thank you for them, their craftsmanship is inspiring to me!

      Enrique, I am not a good artist! I drew the older simple line art examples myself using line tools such as Illustrator, but the more recent and more impressive images are the work of ChatGPT, typically with a lot of combining and corrections in Photoshop to get the image I want.

    Dear Tim,

    Can I use one or more of your cartoons on LinkedIn if I do not do any changes and keep your website on them?

    Hi Timo,

    I’m an Argentinean teacher of English and materials writer based in Spain. I write Business English materials for my own classes and then share them on my website for free so that teachers worldwide have access to high-quality materials to use in their own lessons.

    I would like to know if I can use some of your cartoons for a coming lesson plan on innovation I’m working on at the moment. I’ll share the link with you as soon as I finish it.

    Thanks in advance, keep up up your great work! All the best for 2023!

    Best wishes,

    My name is Michaela Salden and I work as image rights manager of language-educational books for the publishing house Ernst Klett Sprachen GmbH in Germany.
    Within our new textbook “Words in Context Lernaufgaben” and the associated Rechteverbund our editors would like to reproduce four of your cartoons. Would you please be so kind and get in touch with me to give you more information about the book an unsage? That would be great, thank you!
    Best Michaela

    I am a librarian and educator at a small, private university in Indiana. I am seeking permission on behalf of faculty and students at my institution for use of your cartoons in educational presentations with attribution. If seeking permission from each individual faculty member or student is preferred, please let me know and I will post a link to a guide that provides a list of image sources with those instructions.

    1. Timo Elliott Avatar


      Many thanks for asking! – I confirm that you have my permission for any student or faculty to use any of my cartoons in presentations as they wish, without needing to make any further requests… Of course, I always love hearing if they’re being used as part of something cool/useful/educational 🙂

    First, thank you for your amazing work! If that’s ok with you, we want to use one of your illustration for a powerpoint presentation where we’ll present some customers case studies and what we learned. We’ll add your name (and translate the text in French).
    Thank you and have a great day!

    Hi Timo,
    Great cartoons! Would it be possible to use any, with attribution/link, on a few company LinkedIn posts? We are a project management SME and we like to post a “Project thought of the week”, sometimes (attempting to be) humourous and your humour really fits well!

    Hi, I would like to be able to use one of your images for a report I am doing in my Critical Thinking class. I am analyzing a section of a publication called the Global Happiness Policy Report 2018. The selection focuses on growing technology and makes references to artificial intelligence taking human jobs. Your illustration with the robot pointing out inefficiencies is a good fit. May I use it?

      Beth, you have my full permission to use my cartoons — I’m honored, thank you for asking, please go ahead, and best of luck with your report!

    Hi Timo
    I saw a cartoon regarding Predictive Maintenance -“Henry its for you -apparently your heart is about to fail…”

    I saw in many years back in an SAP presentation. Loved it so much that saved it.

    I plan to use it in my upcoming book that has a chapter talking about future and technology-related stuff.

    Hoping I can get your approval for same

      Sandeep, you have my full permission… good luck with the book!

    Hi Timo, I am using one of your cartoons for a presentation I am doing next week, to underline the complexity of building your own analyitcs infrastructure instead of going with SaaS technology. (“Can you help me with my analutics?” “No, I am too busy building a new analytics infrastructure”). Thanks for some very precise and funny cartoons!
