  T. rex VP by Dave Klug About the Design
"T.rex VP," by award-winning and widely published illustrator Dave Klug, symbolizes the evolutionary path dinosaurs took to become the giants they were, in the same way Pittsburgh has evolved from a blue-collar, smoke-filled city to a hi-tech, white-collar giant of industry.  With his stylish hat and briefcase in claw, he is ready to conquer the world...again!
