maxOM got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Windy the Aviator Cartoon
Check out maxOM's Character or mascot contest…
WindStars is a music curriculum for schools. The kids (Grades 1 - 5) use brightly coloured plastic wind instruments by Nuvo - see attached. The curriculum teaches them how to play the instruments in a group setting and make music part of their lives forever. The music they play in the classroom is fun, modern and creative. The kids and the program is known as WindStars and gives them a great foundation in music skills.
What's your vision?
I would like you to develop a cartoon character using a simple hand drawn line drawing style which will be printed in 1 color - black on white in a kids music book. Kids will be invited to color in the cartoons so we don't need color. The character is a non-gender and race specific character who is a wannabe pilot - called Windy! Windy wants to fly a plane one day but first has to learn to play some musical instruments - Windy wears an aviator helmet and goggles (on the helmet) and an oversized aviator jacket at all times. Windy gets involved in a number of situations which involve musical notes and always has at least one of our Nuvo instruments in hand (see Nuvo catalog). Some ideas to work on - note taming (like lion taming), note charming (like snake charming). We will also use Windy to illustrate certain song titles such as Baggy Pants. The cartoons should be fun and suitable for 3/4th Graders.
Once the character has been developed we will work with the winning designer to create more cartoons for our 3 levels of WindStars books. Attached is our instrument catalog - you can use the DooD and TooT and jSax to include in Windy's hands during his/her adventures!
