Video: David Horsey and Brian Bassett on Editorial Cartooning

From a 1988 UWTV interview show "Upon Reflection With Host Al Page," here are David Horsey and Brian Bassett talking about the life of a Seattle editorial cartoonist.

At the time, Mr Horsey, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, had been the editorial cartoonist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer since 1979. He left for the Los Angeles Times in 2011.

Brian Bassett worked for the Seattle Times for 16 years in the same capacity. He would leave in 1994. He is now the force behind two syndicated comic strips, Red and Rover (which won the National Cartoonists Society Best Comic Strip Award in 2013), and Adam@Home (which is now drawn by Rob Farrell).
