    Most Dinosaurs Roar

    I thought the other poems seemed very literal. Or maybe they aimed at an older crowd. This one allowed for more artistic creativity. I could do a spoof. The poet is talking about the MOST museum and people having coffee. The poem made me think to include dinosaurs instead of humans drinking coffee. Although I had never used clay as a medium, I felt that the idea of dinosaurs sipping coffee seemed to lend itself to clay. I wanted to create something that children would like, and a clay illustration looks like something to play with. Although they might not actually be able to touch the dinosaurs, I knew that children would think of my illustration as colorful, cartoony and playful.
