SEATTLE -- Seattle political cartoonist David Horsey's is displaying work again in a joint exhibition -- with his mother.

"It's a joy to have our work together," says Horsey as he holds his 91-year-old mother Jeanne's hand.

"I got it from him!" claims Jeanne, on who started drawing first.

It wasn't until 16 years ago, after raising her kids and burying her husband that Jeanne picked up a pencil and started creating. David jokes his mom is a 20-year-old in a 91-year-old's body.

"It's certainly was an explosion of creativity it's was like waiting to get out," says David.

But Jeanne's frailty is apparent. Last month she suffered cardiac arrest. Jeanne calls this latest exhibit her second act.

"There must be a reason for me being back again. I will put out my great masterpiece," she says.

The exhibit is at Aljoya Thornton Place, 450 N.E. 100th St., through February.
