Story Marking my—GULP!—Twenty-Five Years at the Omaha World-Herald

A big thanks to Mike Kelly. See the story here.

New Cartoon Book!

2014 marks my twenty-fifth year with the Omaha World-Herald. To help celebrate the occasion, the World-Herald has just published (September, 2014) a collection of some of my best work from the past—gulp!—quarter century (has it really been that long?). You can order it here: Koterba: Drawing You In



Originals Now Available:

Yes, behind every cartoon of mine that appears in print or online, there’s an actual, original drawing. And now you can own a Koterba of your very own!

Caption Contest!

June 5, 2013: To help ring in summer, I’ll be announcing a special cartoon caption contest! Stay tuned!

Jack Hoffman Cartoon:

April 11, 2013: Jack Hoffman cartoon on the Big Ten Network’s website. Due to high demand for prints, please contact the Omaha World-Herald store directly: Also, many readers have asked about t-shirts, the proceeds of which would go to a charitable cause. Stay tuned…

Caption Contest:

I’ve created a special illustration for Come up with the best caption and the drawing is yours! Deadline: September 29, 2012. Check the website for more details…


Although Prairie Cats are currently on hiatus, I’ll be playing mandolin and appearing in Andrea Davidson‘s upcoming music video. Stay tuned!
