Now, this one was strange. Astronaut Anne McClain — who’s originally from the area — returned from several months aboard the International Space Station. She told our reporter that she received our e-edition on her laptop every day in orbit. So design director Chris Soprych asked me to figure out: How much would it have cost to send her a physical newspaper every day? The answer, if you put it in fairly simple terms anyone could understand, was enough to fill up a Further Review page. So I did. The image I had of the turret in front of the Spokesman-Review building was pretty crappy, so Jesse Tinsley shot a new one and Chris used it to replace the one in my original illustration.
