Lurching Forward: Tom Brady in Pasty Pastel

DATELINE: Art for Art’s Sake for Heaven’s Sake

Les Miserables or Tom in Court

Only in the world Featured imageof Roger Goodell do two wrongs make a right, or perhaps at the Famous Artists School.  The federal court artist that has drawn the short straw for two hearings has put a bullseye around Tom Brady for a second time.

Jane Rosenberg needs a new prescription for her eyeglasses. She did see Tom wink and wave at her. Maybe he needs glasses. The latest Tom smacks of Les Miserables.

Court artiste had a second chance to do a quickie with Tom Brady at the third Deflate-gate hearing. Over the weekend, she practiced and did a dimpled version of Tom that might pass a quick look at midnight in the dark.

Today she claimed that hearing was far too short, a mere five minutes, not giving her time enough to digest the good looks of Tom. She admitted she has trouble with pretty.

A critical eye on the latest Brady rendition is enough to convince us that subjective art tells us more about the artist than the subject she paints.

Here, Tom has improved from Laughton’s Quasimodo and now looks merely like the Addams Family butler, Lurch.

Maybe Ms Rosenberg has a Thing for ugly.

If she wants to design Halloween parties, she may be just the bat out of hell to do it. Her intermediate Tom looked like an outtake of Spartacus with Kirk Douglas.

If we are lucky, Jane Rosenberg will never again have to face an easel and Tom Brady. We suspect her true medium is mud.

There was no settlement in the court case, and the art work has remained unsettling.

DATELINE: Not an Animal!

Of all the grave injustices done to Tom Brady, we never suspected that the worst of the worst would come from a court-deigned sketch artist with delusions of Picasso and Munch.

Yes, Jane Rosenberg sketched Tom in court in such a light that she missed the fact that his suit was blue seersucker, not brown off the rack.

The artist took a beating on social media, with good cause. She ought to go and cut off one of her ears to improve her art. She told press and media she had not digested the horror she had committed, saying, she was sorry she didn’t make Tom look prettier. He is, in her estimation, quite pretty.

We thought she threw in a touch of the Elephant Man into her artwork. We expected that Tom would stand up at the hearing and cry out, “I am a man, not an animal!”

Alas, we think the artist is not a fan of Tom Brady. She didn’t paint what she saw—what artist does? She painted the movie she watched the night before going to work. Yes, we saw it immediately—especially the lumps around the eyes.

Rosenberg saw Tom Brady as Quasimodo, as depicted in 1939 by Charles Laughton and MGM’s best makeup men.

Hideous is not a word often applied to Tom, but he was morose in the courtroom, despite the support Judge Berman gave him by grilling the NFL lawyer.

Tom did not laugh, chuckle or guffaw with the rest of the courtroom when jokes were made about deflation. This is serious business for the quarterback, and he wore his game face.

We just never saw before the resemblance between Tom Brady and Quasimodo, Victor Hugo’s bell-ringer.

Someone ring Tom’s bell, please.
