Posted on the Washington Post:

It’s moving pretty fast. Did anyone catch what he was coloring with?

The thing he was colouring with? I think you’ll find it’s called a paint brush – like watercolour :)

And at around 1:13, he uses a toothbrush.

When he uses the toothbrush, the splatters go everywhere, ever across the faces and shirts of Obama and Boehner, but in the close up at the end, no splatters. I’m guessing the video leaves out where he masked the main characters with frisket. I don’t think that tissue or cloth toward the end could have cleaned it up that well or as accurately. Anyone know more about his technique?

Interesting that he used a Uniball pen, too.

It says something about how far to the extreme the parties
have moved that Boehner and Obama are now considered to be
in the middle. That tooth brush splatter looks like my 401k right
now

I have a youtube channel dedicated to videos of cartoonists drawing. It has this video and over 40 others by various artists including Charles Schulz and Al Hirschfeld. If you have a video you would like to see included, let me know.
