This is a busy time of year for pumpkin carvers, but one Brooklyn artist is getting attention this week for his non-Halloween characters.At a demonstration of his carving technique, Hugh McMahon had the presidential candidates on display.

He admits he's an Obama supporter, but says he tried not to let that influence his work.

McMahon says each pumpkin portrait takes two to three hours and can cost up to $1,000.
