Cartoonist David Horsey, Pulitzer winner at Seattle P-I, joins L.A. Times

Nationally known Seattle cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, who received two Pulitzer prizes for his work at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, will go to work for the Los Angeles Times.

Horsey, a Seattle native, will join the L. A. paper’s political team, recrafting the  newspaper’s “Top of the Ticket” blog with his combination of cartoons and written commentary, the newspaper announced today.

Since print publication of the Post-Intelligencer ceased in 2009, Horsey has provided cartoons and columns for the Hearst newspapers in San Francisco, San Antonio, Houston, Albany and Connecticut, as well as for seattlepi.com.

“I’ve had a long, incredibly rewarding run with the P-I,” Horsey said. “The steady support I received from editors and publishers and colleagues helped me achieve things I would never have dreamed of and I got to do it in my hometown where my friends and family could share in my success.”

Horsey received the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1999 and 2003 and was a finalist for the prize in 1987.

He received a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Washington and a master’s in international relations from the University of Kent at Canterbury (U.K.). In 2004, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by Seattle University.

He has published seven collections of his work.
