Sometimes cartoonists have to get out of their squalid garrets and get out on the road.

So Martin Rowson, political cartoonist and Procartoonists.org member, has been telling the world about his work, most notably new graphic novel take on Gulliver’s Travels at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Forbidden Planet has a report.

Meanwhile, the US cartoonist Rob Rogers is proposing a new way to make sure he can cover the Republican and Democrat National conventions on the ground, rather than being stuck at his drawing board.
