yes it was inspired by the book.
I actually don't own the book, or a printer right now. So i took some pictures of him with my camera off the computer screen then drew him on the plate at the place.
I think that answered the question?

Did you make it at one of those cool make-a-plate type places? We used to have one in town but it closed down, I was so sad! (Of course the only thing I ever made was during my 70s revival phase when i was 14 .. I'll leave it at that.)

Yeah it was a paint-your-own-pottery place.
you a pick a piece of bisque fired pottery and use their glazes and kiln.

The Very Hungry Catapillar plate is too cute.  I wouldn't have been brave enough to free-hand it.
You hit on a great idea.  Imagine a set of four Dr. Seuss plates, or four Eric Carle plates or ...  you see where this is going.
