Tom Brady court sketch

Jane Rosenberg

Tom Brady, Jane Rosenberg is sorry she drew you to look so creepy and kooky.

The courtroom artist had this week released a sketch she made of the suspended Boston Patriots quarterback at a hearing for his "Deflategate" case. The drawing, which shows him appearing gaunt, went viral and sparked numerous memes and comparisons to unflattering pop culture characters, such as Lurch, the butler in The Addams Family. Brady has not commented.

"I'm getting bad criticism that I made him look like Lurch," Rosenberg told The New York Times on Wednesday. "And obviously I apologize to Tom Brady for not making him as good-looking as he is."

She also told Vice, "Tell Tom Brady, I'm sorry. He's a very good looking guy and if I didn't make him look good enough, I'll try harder next time."

Rosenberg also told the outlet she feels more pressure when she has to sketch very recognizable people.

"Especially when they're good looking, that's the worst," she said. "I'd rather do famous terrorists or something."

"Does it bother me, people making fun of me?" she added. "I don't know. It hasn't sunk in yet. I might be very depressed. I'm my biggest critic, myself. So I feel terrible when I do a bad sketch. So when the whole world is criticizing me, I might just kill myself. Or I might just laugh it off. Who knows?"
