NotesMartin Rowson commented of this cartoon: “I objected...on [BBC TV] ‘Front Row’ to a cartoon Steve did a couple of days after the September the 11th bombings [59098] which I shouldn’t have done. It was a sort of shitting in ones own nest I suppose. I work on the basis that...everything is inherently hilariously funny but some things take longer for that to be acceptable...And I thought Steve’s cartoon two days after was too soon. I found myself in a very strange position where I illustrate Tony Parsons’ column in the Mirror for my sins and I illustrated his rather bullish column with a picture of the statue of liberty crying [59068] and Steve quite rightly upbraided me for this extraordinary hackneyed image. So I found myself being attacked by Steve on one side and then I found myself doing a cartoon for the Guardian on Monday where I drew Uncle Sam taking some missiles as fast-acting pain relief [59070] and I found myself being criticised in a phone conversation by Peter Brookes of the Times of being hideously insensitive and callous. Whereas I thought that...all the following political fair game.”
