Drawings

Here is a page of John Terwilliger's drawings.  This page will be updated as I scan, re-shoot, and create drawings.

"The Charcoal grinds itself into nothing, the very act of drawing is as destructive as it is creative.  Something grows out of the death of the material.  The drawing surface and the drawing material  change as the drawing eats itself away and grows.  The paper sucks up the charcoal and dust drifts down the surface of the paper subtly tinting/staining the white gray." The Braindead Aesthetic - 2005
