In this paper we consider various ways that drawing occurs in mathematics. We describe, and give examples of, drawing-based mathematical proof: in this context drawing is a language for communicating mathematical reasoning. We then describe our artistic collaboration, where drawing functions both as a language for interdisciplinary communication, essential to the formative process, and as the artwork itself.
