Monsters in My Backyard

So Wes and I started a blog, called Monsters in My Backyard, that combines his drawing and my writing, and we put the first post up today.

The idea is that we look at stuff from the nearby natural world, he imagines and draws a monster based on what he sees, and then I write about some of what science says is actually going on out there.

If you saw me pop up on Instagram as "monstersinmybackyard" a while back--this is what that was about. But we'd love it if you took a look if you're interested and shared it with anyone else you think might be interested, too.

Here's our first post: On Wood Decay Fungi, or, That Dying Tree Is More Alive Than You Think

And here's Wes's illustration for it:
