Just thought I’d share some of the spot illustrations I made for researcher Andrea Swei at San Francisco State University. She does work on disease ecology, with a particular focus on tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. Here are a sampling of some hosts, as well as the life stages of the tick itself!
