I have managed to create a module, and overwrite the \Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Pdf\Invoice class, using the steps proposed by this answer: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/241932/80959

My question is how do I edit the _drawItem() method?

In the original implementation all the data is sent to some product renderer object:

 * Draw Item process
 * @param  \Magento\Framework\DataObject $item
 * @param  \Zend_Pdf_Page $page
 * @param  \Magento\Sales\Model\Order $order
 * @return \Zend_Pdf_Page
protected function _drawItem(\Magento\Framework\DataObject $item, \Zend_Pdf_Page $page, \Magento\Sales\Model\Order $order)
    $type = $item->getOrderItem()->getProductType();
    $renderer = $this->_getRenderer($type);


    return $renderer->getPage();

I don't understand it's purpose, nor I am able to find it's source code.

Should I discard that code altogether and start drawing each value? Or is there a purpose for that renderer, case in which I might lose some functionality?
