Not even one month ago, veteran courtroom sketch artist Jane Rosenberg saw her portrayal of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady go viral immediately after a Deflategate hearing in a federal court in Manhattan.
"Obviously I apologize to Tom Brady for not making him as good-looking as he is,” Rosenberg told the New York Times hours after the hearing. But as the social media–averse artist quickly learned, you can't stop the memes:
Rosenberg practiced drawing the four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback before he was required to appear back in court Monday for the never-ending Deflategate saga:
Today's hearing — the third and final Deflategate meeting before a federal judge — offered Rosenberg yet another challenge: The parties were only seated in the courtroom for about 10 minutes.
A major improvement, certainly, but Rosenberg joked that “I still think I made him look like Lurch.”
“(Brady is) in my dreams, it’s a nightmare for me,” Rosenberg told the Daily News. “I hope this thing gets settled and is over with.”
