Preparing for the New England Patriots and Tom Brady has caused many NFL defensive coordinators sleepless nights. It appears the handsome 38-year-old quarterback has tormented the sleep of yet another soul -- that of sketch artist Jane Rosenberg, the courtroom veteran whose Aug. 12 depiction of Brady at a Deflategate hearing in federal court was widely ridiculed.
“(Brady is) in my dreams, it’s a nightmare for me,” Rosenberg told the New York Daily News. “I hope this thing gets settled and is over with.”
In anticipation of what will be a highly scrutinized sketch, she took the opportunity to practice for Brady, only with more handsome this time. Take a look:
“There’s a lot of pressure on me," she added on the eve of Brady's Aug. 31 appearance in Judge Richard Berman’s courtroom, the site of her own next performance. "A lot of eyeballs on me. I just hope my hands can move, period. I know I’m not going to have any sleep tonight. I still might blow it; anything could happen.”
“I just don’t think I can satisfy everyone,” she told the Boston Herald. “Will I try? Yeah, I’ll try to make him look handsomer.”
Are you happy now, Patriots fans?

According to the Associated Press, when she was finishing her second work in the courtroom on Monday, Brady walked nearby with his lawyers, waved, and said "thank you."
