The Death of Money

The Zombie Queen

My recent work has centered around ideas of value, worth, illusion and control.  What do we value in life, how do we create our own self worth? How do we control our own destinies and how are we steered through life by the influence of others? My zombie series is particularly influenced by these ideas.  How are we controlled and influenced by money in defining our day to day decisions on how we run our lives? The first zombies I started were the Undead Presidents – the figureheads on our currency whom we keep alive through commerce.  Then came the myriad of other souls captured by foreign nations and printed on their currency. All of these currencies are like so many puppet strings, orchestrating actions and flow of resources throughout the world. How can we break its spell and awaken from our slumber?

I’m a Beleiber

Kids today are easily led astray. Justin Bieber bigger than Kurt Cobain? Bigger than MICHAEL JACKSON? Well, we all know that size doesn’t matter.  It’s quality over quantity.  ALL APOLOGIES to mr Bieber, but he’s got nothing on Kurt or Michael. Methinks all of these zombies have Bieber fever.

Ozombie Bin Laden

Ezra Li Eismont - Charcoal and Acrylic on paper, 42"x56" 2011

I first created this image back in October of 2010 for my mini zombie coloring book. In light of recent events I felt compelled to “bring this one back to life” so to speak. This one is larger of course, than my mini coloring book version, and it is in color. For the first time in a while this piece felt like it had to happen – I felt compelled to create this image as a response to the media onslaught that has people reveling in the streets because we murdered someone unarmed in their own home.
