Ferdinand-China Shop

The China shop was a challenge. I designed the four walls, then designed smaller "movable" display units, as I weren't sure what business Ferdinand would be doing. Scale was a huge consideration, as Ferdinand was the largest character, and was going to interact with the little old lady who was vertically challenged. The various china pieces had to scale to each other, Ferdinand and the lady.
Originally the whole shop was going to be revealed wrecked, but budget contraints won out and we hear most of the carnage O/S, with just a few items and the broken front window in the film.  I originally designed the front window as round, as it seemed more quaint and to match some of the other window motifs. The back door, I wanted to feel like a prison door, with the tiny window, etc.
