Jane Rosenberg, the artist responsible for the courtroom sketch showing Tom Brady's "melting face," apologizes for not making the quarterback "good-looking enough."

The sketch artist, who had been rendering images of the courtroom for decades, expressed her sincere apologies for the unintended attention given to her artwork.

"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," the artist told Vice, adding that she was not aiming for the attention and that she definitely did not intend to make Brady look like Lurch.

Apparently, Rosenberg did not focus on Brady on her actual sketch and had only been given a very short period to finish her drawing.

"I did this whole wide shot with a million people in it. And everybody's focusing on that one little fraction of the whole picture, of Tom Brady. But it's really a big wide composition. There's a lot of people and the whole courtroom in it," she explained, adding that her sketches can only go as realistic as a couple of seconds of artistry would allow.

Rosenberg is known for her courtroom sketches particularly on high-profile cases including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and others that involved big names such as Martha Stewart, John Gotti and Woody Allen.

Unfortunately, the social media seem to not consider all these since when something seem odd, it goes viral, period.

In fact, ESPN noted some memes that circulate the information superhighway including one which involved the Disney flick The Hunchback of Notre Dame where Brady's sketched face photoshopped into Quasimodo's body.

Another meme shows the sketched face of the quarterback sitting atop the body of the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger, captioned: "Brady Krueger. DON'T GO TO SLEEP."

All these seem to have rubbed Rosenberg the wrong way, as she sounds shockingly direct in an interview with Boston Globe.

"I don't tend to flatter people and make them look beautiful," she stated, adding that Brady seemed to be frowning and had been looking down on his cellphone for most of the hearing.

"He hardly looked up at all," she said, adding with a bit more sarcasm that the athlete does not seem to be interested in what is happening around him.

When asked about how her work had been mocked over Twitter, she simply stated: "At least they can figure out which one is Tom Brady. That's good, whether he looks good or bad. It's not just a stick figure of a nobody."
