Today, I came across exquisite sculptures of my character, “Erin Esurance” that will be in the Advertising Icon Museum in Missouri. The museum is slated to open up sometime this year. Props to the uber talented artist, Damon Bard who is just across the Bay in Emeryville, CA. Damon specializes in sculpture and design of characters and creatures for animation and visual effects.

Looking back over the last 5 years, I think this was by far one of the funniest spots.
Nancy Wolfson of Braintrax Audio told me “Erin doesn’t look a day over four!”
(proud but voice is shot, I sound like Brenda Vacarro)
Thanks to everyone who came out to my house party in honor of Erin Esurance’s 5th anniversary. She debuted on TV 7/20/04. Much respect and gratitude to Popscene Founder/DJ & Live 105 Music Director, Aaron Axelsen for spinning. Get your groove on every Thursday night at POPSCENE. This week, enjoy a live show from Portland band, Hockey. www.popscene.com
Sorry I have been out of the loop for awhile…
As part of the NBA’s Go Green Week, Esurance teamed up with Urban Releaf & the
Golden State Warriors to beautify Oakland. With shovel in tow, I helped
plant several of 16 trees. It was a positive vibe but the best part was meeting
CJ Watson and Brandan Wright. These guys were totally chill and very sweet.
Man do I feel short, ha!
This week-end, I will be appearing at WonderCon in San Francisco. This 3 day comic
extravaganza takes place at Moscone Center South at 747 Howard Street. Just look for
the 5 foot Erin Esurance cut-out. Until then….
This is not your typical :30 spot, this is different. Tune in for the last 2 Erin skits where animation is integrated with the motley duo of regular cast members, Guillermo & Uncle Frank. It’s obvious that Guillermo has a secret crush on Erin & Uncle Frank needs his Rx (meds!) It’s fresh, comical & props to WildBrain Animators for making Erin’s facial expressions eerily life-like. The final 2 will air this week– 10/28 & 10/30 on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC. Make sure you tune in early since it will be on at the very beginning. Let me know what you think.
