"This isn't a normal sketch I'm selling to some assistant U.S. Attorney"
A viral courtroom sketch of Tom Brady may soon land in the hands of one of two dozen interested buyers.
Artist Jane Rosenberg, whose depiction of the NFL star during a “Deflategate” hearing last week drew comparisons to Voldemort, E.T., Gollum and Lurch, told the New York Daily News on Tuesday that she’s mulling over selling the infamous sketch.
“I have not decided what I’m going to do with it. I don’t have a clue what it’s truly worth. This isn’t a normal sketch I’m selling to some assistant U.S. Attorney,” Rosenberg said. “It might be a different arena entirely — sports memorabilia.”
Among the interested buyers are The Sports Museum in Boston, which Rosenberg said had asked her to loan the sketch for a month. None of the potential buyers included dollar figures in their offers, she added.
Rosenberg, a veteran courtroom sketch artist who has drawn high-profile cases like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, previously apologized for her depiction of Brady following waves of online mockery.
“I’m getting bad criticism that I made him look like Lurch,” Rosenberg said, referring to the Addams Family character. “And obviously I apologize to Tom Brady for not making him as good-looking as he is.”
