LAT Cartoonist To Work From Seattle

Modern technology is great. It’s allowing cartoonist David Horsey, recently hired by the Los Angeles Times, to remain in Seattle, SeattleWeekly reports.

His new gig, which begins Jan 1: “recrafting” the newspaper’s Top of the Ticket political blog, with “some combination every day of words and pictures.”

Since Top of the Ticket covers national politics, it apparently isn’t strictly necessary for Horsey to be in town.

He did offer to relocate, though. After his bosses said he could stay in Seattle, he responded: “how about in the winter months then?”

See, it’s funny because it’s rainy in Seattle.

But hey, as the Weekly puts it, this is kind of a dream job. Interesting work and you don’t have to move. Cool.
