white house press briefing image 648

The White House has banned videotaping and photos at some of its press briefings lately, so CNN decided to send a sketch artist. Bill Hennessy -- who is CNN's regular sketch artist for Supreme Court proceedings -- headed over to the White House on Friday to draw Press Secretary Sean Spicer's afternoon briefing.

The video camera that can be seen on the right side of some of Hennessy's sketches was turned off during the Friday briefing. It was one of several pieces of video equipment that remained in the briefing room at their normal locations, even as recording was banned.
