David Horsey joins L.A. Times as staff cartoonist

Seattle Post-Intelligencer editorial cartoonist David Horsey is heading to the L.A. Times. David, a two-time Pulitzer winner, has been working for Hearst newspapers since the Seattle Post-Intelligencer went under in 2009.

The Seattle Times reports that David will join the Times’ political team providing both cartoons and commentary similar to what he’s produced for the Seattle P-I.

The number of people to which this is pertinent can fit in that car WITH J-Lo. But this is a great thing for a very talented cartoonist, long overdue and kudos.

Well deserved!! And Kudos to the LA Times for taking such a bold move at a time when other papers are shirking from their responsibility of providing readers with the best form of commentary there is — the editorial cartoon.

Kudos is right.
It’s not clear if this means David is getting the Conrad/Ramirez Chair (and six cartoons a week). But we can hope….
