Nekisha Durrett's large-scale graphic narrative, Their Eyes Were Watching Everything, reveals her own curiosity about the Choju-Jinbutsu-Giga emaki (scrolls of Frolicking Animals and People) and the question of how narrative is shaped and by whom. Void of cues that typically organize narrative – beginning and end, hero and villain, time and place, truth and fiction – Durrett's graphic drawings are decidedly ambiguous. Through her eccentric cast of characters, obscure signifiers and implied landscape, Durrett weaves an open-ended narrative that incorporates the literal and the poetic.  She encourages the wonder that disjointed narrative and fluidity of meaning can inspire.
