Graphic designer and writer Don Moyer likes drawings that make him laugh, so when he inherited a traditional blue willow-pattern plate that belonged to his great-grandparents, he redrew it to add a dinosaur. Eventually he went on to wreck even more artistic havoc, adding outrageous calamities like zombie poodles, flying monkeys, giant sea monsters, pterodactyls, volcanoes and all.

The second plate in his Calamityware series featuring a giant robot looming over a zen garden looks set to be reproduced on real porcelain plates and shipped by the end of May this year.
