The source material for the drawings in Excerpts comes from my ongoing project The Marginalia Archive—specifically, marginalia found in the stacks of Washington, DC's public library. The drawings follow the rise and fall of the anonymous reader’s handwritten underline as it moves from panel to panel beneath a sentence. New words and phrases are formed between panels, functioning on one level as found, abstract poetry.
