Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey is a political commentator for the Los Angeles Times. His Top of the Ticket blog is the mostly highly viewed feature on LATIMES.com. David’s work has appeared in hundreds of media outlets, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek and MSNBC.com.

Besides winning two Pulitzers for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1999 and 2003, Horsey has received the National Press Foundation’s Berryman Award for Cartoonist of the Year and many other honors, including first place in the Best of the West Journalism Competition for his columns about the 2008 presidential election.

After graduating from the University of Washington, Horsey entered journalism as a political reporter. His multi-faceted career has taken him to national political party conventions, presidential primaries, the Olympic Games, the Super Bowl, assignments in Europe, Japan and Mexico and two extended stints working at the Hearst Newspapers Washington Bureau.

As a Rotary Foundation Scholar, Horsey earned an MA in International Relations from the University of Kent at Canterbury. He was also awarded an honorary doctorate from Seattle University.

Horsey has published seven books of cartoons, including his two most recent, Draw Quick, Shoot Straight and From Hanging Chad to Baghdad.

For escape, he spends a few weeks each year working as a cowboy in Montana.
