David Horsey

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner David Horsey is known for his cartoons' biting satire and clever allusions to contemporary culture, as well as for his supreme talent as an artist and draftsman. He also happens to be a subtle and accomplished essayist.

David's political cartoon feature is unique, as it moves alongside a short essay about the subject. Not an explanation of the cartoon, the essay is instead a complementary meditation, delving a little deeper and sometimes following a different thread of keen political satire. The combined effect of the cartoon and essay is a powerful and thought-provoking exposition of a major issue of the day, and a valuable addition to any editorial page.

Horsey's feature is not available to be published in markets in the state of California.

His editorial cartoons are distributed as part of the TMS Editorial Cartoon Service.
