Poor Jane Rosenberg, the courtroom artist whose drawing of Tom Brady during a Deflategate hearing, well, blew up last month. Rosenberg got her mulligan yesterday, a matter of great interest here in Bradyville.
The Boston Globe’s Namesniks gave her new sketch a thumb’s up.
Artist has second shot at sketching Tom Brady
Rosenberg made national news Aug. 12 after her less-than-flattering sketches of Tom Brady from his Deflategate hearing went viral. She told the Globe that day, of her courtroom work, “I don’t tend to flatter people and make them look beautiful.” Later she said she received hundreds of e-mails from fans who were unhappy with the depiction of their quarterback. But on Monday, after Brady left the courtroom, Rosenberg unveiled her new look for the Patriots star. Looks more like the guy we know, right?
Actually, no, according to crosstown rival Boston Herald.
Artist’s 2nd Brady sketch draws different critiques
Courtroom sketch artist Jane Rosenberg got another crack at drawing Tom Brady following a disastrous first attempt that depicted the Patriots quarterback as ghoulish and uncomely, opening her up to ridicule and scorn from Patriots nation.
Unfortunately, her second sketch bears a striking resemblance to the wrong All-Pro quarterback.
Trying to tone down the rigid features she gave Brady’s lower face in the first sketch, Rosenberg ended up extending and stretching Brady’s forehead, creating a figure that more closely resembles his rival, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
