Martin Rowson on political cartoons

Martin Rowson said of drawing politicians on the BBC One Show:

"The one thing worse for a politician than being drawn in a political cartoon is not being drawn in a political cartoon. Because it means, first of all that nobody has heard of them and also that they're not recognizable." 
In my previous post here, Gerald Scarfe said:
"The sad final truth is that it doesn’t matter how hard you hit politicians — most are so arrogant, they would rather be drawn as a warthog than not drawn at all."
