Jeff Koterba’s cartoons heading to Space Station

Rob Tornoe interviews Omaha World-Herald cartoonist Jeff Koterba who will have two of his cartoons traveling to the International Space Station on April 5.

How did your cartoon end up on one of NASA’s final space shuttle flights?

Clayton Anderson, the only Nebraska-born astronaut, will be flying on the upcoming shuttle flight Discovery. I first “met” him in 2007 when he emailed me from the International Space Station to tell me how much he enjoyed a cartoon I had drawn about him. Since then we’ve kept in touch. Last fall he invited me to draw two cartoons that he could take on the the shuttle-he suggested that one cartoon be given to my newspaper, The Omaha World-Herald, and the other I could keep for myself. So the cartoon for myself has to do with Dogie the Doggie.
