4/19/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #18 on MVTW page.

4/16/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #17.5 on MVTW page. Originally, it was going to be comic #18 but I changed my mind and wanted to make it 17.5. Why?... it's because I can.

4/14/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #17 on MVTW page. It's more of an illustration rather than a comic strip but no matter, I like to diversify things. Anyway, here's a little warning, the next comic strip #18 #17.5 has a sort of adult joke that may be deemed inappropriate to some readers. Just letting y'all know ahead of time.

3/19/21: I replaced the black and white version of the MVTW comics with the colored version. I might recolor comic #4 and then reupload it a different day. The dragon is bit too saturated...

3/15/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #5 on MVTW page

3/14/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #4 on MVTW page

3/13/21: Uploaded MVTW comic #3 on MVTW page

3/12/21: I uploaded MVTW comic #2 on MVTW page! Also added description about what the comic is about on the same page.

3/11/21: Finally! I have uploaded the first comic strip of Monsters vs. The World on MVTW page!! I have several bw MVTW comic strips and will post them at different days. I will do color version of these and will upload them in the future. I have removed the link to the Vita Monstra bestiary but I may bring it back someday. I want to just focus more on the comic for now. Later I will continue refining and adding more details about the monsters in the Vita Monstra bestiary. Also, I put the Racket gifs and arts back on Racket page, just to simplify things.

3/8/21: Uploaded expression sheet of Racket on Racket Arts & Sketches.

3/6/21: I completed the inking of the Squink and Hoogerwart. I also added the data about them. All on MVTW page.

3/4/21: I uploaded an inked version of Nyahoo kitty character model sheet. I also uploaded a partially inked version of the Squink and Hoogerwart illustration but it is still a work in progress. I'll have it fully inked by tomorrow.

3/2/21: I uploaded a pencil sketch featuring 2 new monsters Squink and Hoogerwart on the MVTW page.

2/28/21: Uploaded an inked version of Nimblelimbers and added some data about the creature.

2/25/21: I added a rough character model sheet of Racket to Racket Arts & Sketches page. I will, of course, work on it more and post an updated version at some point in time. I am going to take a break from posting tomorrow so that I can devote a bit more time to drawing arts and stuff. Yup.

2/24/21: I made a pencil sketch of Nyahoo kitty but not just a simple sketch...It's a character model sheet. I'm going to try to ink it within a few days while also inking the Nimblelimbers sketch. I do have Racket model sheet too but I will post it either tomorrow or the next. I posted Nyahoo kitty model sheet on Racket Arts & Sketches

2/23/21: NEW MONSTER on MVTW page! Nimblelimbers! Just a sketch but I will ink it at some point and then add some data.

2/22/21: I had a change in heart. Remember when I said I didn't like the watercolor version of the Snoboscis. I decided it doesn't matter anyway. It's good practice. So I uploaded it. It's on the MVTW page now. The black and white version still look better than the colored one though.

2/21/21: On the MVTW page, I replaced the pencil sketch with the inked version of the Hydra and added a whole bunch of data about it. Right now, I think I need a better system for the scientific classification section because the table thing is just not working out for me. It's too cluttery. I might try collapsible if possible...

2/19/21: uploaded 3 more concept arts to Racket Arts & Sketches page. Happy 1st Quarter Moon day!

2/18/21: Whoo! I made some big changes to some of the pages. I turned the filter on MyArts page into a dropdown. I created new pages for both Racket and MVTW to separate different form of content(animation from comic, etc.) I also added 3 concept arts of Racket on Racket Arts & Sketches page. I hope the new changes I made on the pages is convenient and not burdensome since I only wanted to make sure viewers can enjoy my works on both PC AND mobile phone.

2/17/21: I created a new page to put all Racket-related gifs and also some new thumbnail concept arts there. Here's the link:Racket Arts and Gif. I may try to make some more changes to the website navigation at some point.

2/16/21: I uploaded an inked illustration of Bumbletwee and added some data about it. I also removed the old Gothyka thumbnail sketch and replaced it with a better rough draft of the map. It's not fully complete nor official map of Gothyka yet since I will try to add and refine it a bit more.

2/15/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Free on Racket page. I also added a thumbnail sketch of the Gothyka continent on MVTW page.

2/14/21: uploaded a gif Nyahoo kitty signing Day on Racket page

2/13/21: I added a new art that I'd been working on for the past few days to the MyArts page. It's a drawing request from a friend of mine and is titled King Kong Hip Hop DJ. It looks like this:

2/11/21: uploaded a gif Nyahoo kitty signing School on Racket page

2/10/21: uploaded a gif Nyahoo kitty signing Now on Racket page

2/8/21: added a bunch of info and data about Blumwhoppel on MVTW page

2/7/21: added a bunch of info and data about Piscicastor on MVTW page

2/6/21: uploaded Nyahoo kitty signing Finally on Racket page.

2/5/21: uploaded Nyahoo kitty signing Finish on Racket page. This gif has a slightly different art style from the other Nyahoo Kitty gifs because I made this gif and several others on my iPAD. The previous gifs were done on my smartphone.

2/4/21:uploaded an inked illustration of Blumwhoppel and added info on its scientific classification on MVTW page.

2/3/21: uploaded an inked illustration of Piscicastor on MVTW page. I also added info on its scientific classification. And I finally added the trivia to Smarag.

2/2/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty yawning on Racket page

2/1/21: No upload today. I needed to fix the filter buttons. So far it looks like they're working properly...

1/31/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Blue on Racket page. Tomorrow I am going to try to fix the filter selection issue on the MyArts page. When I clicked one of the filter buttons other than 'Show All', the filter part usually work. But when I click the image and THEN hit the back button, the filter selection goes back to the 'Show All' default mode instead of the chosen filter. This is a bit of an annoyance but I will try to get that fixed.

1/30/21: On MVTW page, I uploaded 4 thumbnail sketches of new monsters: Piscicastor, Bumbletwee, Hydra, and Blumwhoppel! More info about them will come at some point. I also added an illustration of Smarag's tail in Smarag's description. It looks like this:

1/29/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Green on Racket page. Also uploaded another art on MyArts page. It is titled Return of Thade and looks like this:

1/27/21: I added more info about Smarag in MVTW page. Whew! That was a lot of typing!

1/26/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Purple on Racket page. By the way, I have not mentioned in the update that I added 3 links at the bottom of the index pages: Giphy, Redbubble, and TeeSpring. Redbubble and TeeSpring are my online stores but I currently do not have any products in there and it probably won't be awhile till I do. I have a Giphy Artist Channel with many gifs that I made that's not on this website. Feel free to check out my channel! I also uploaded a new art(Mr. Bean as Galactus) on MyArts page. It looks like this:

1/25/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Yellow on Racket page. On the MVTW page, I decided to add a glossary since I may use a lot of unusual terms that people might not understand. I added most of the terms so far and may add some new one if I come up with any. Also I will try to improve the writings and grammars a bit at a time.

1/22/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Red on Racket page. Also I finally made a web button for my website and it's ANIMATED!!

1/21/21: uploaded an inked illustration of Smarag and added some info about it. I decided to just move on and not bother with the colored version of Snoboscis, it's just not looking great. Removed the snow effect from my website.

1/20/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Color on Racket page

1/19/21: uploaded 2 gifs of Nyahoo Kitty: sign for 'thank you' and sign for 'please.'

1/18/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Deaf on Racket page.

1/17/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty signing Cat on Racket page. I am currently still coloring the Snoboscis illustration...using watercolor paint and...it's not looking good in my opinion. Maybe not bad, but not good either. Just meh. My watercolor skill is not that great but I am hoping that I will eventually get better at it. Perhaps next time I try to paint an illustration traditionally, I'll use oil paint. I took a class in it so I have some experience in it.

1/15/21: uploaded black and white illustration of Snoboscis on MVTW. I will do a color version at some point. Also uploaded a thumbnail sketch of a new monster Smarag on MVTW. Info about it is currently a work in progress.

1/14/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty doing ASL sign for Hello on Racket page.

1/13/21: uploaded a gif of Nyahoo Kitty walking on Racket page. It's not the ASL signing gif but it's one of the Nyahoo kitty gif I made back in 2016 and I guess 2017 too. I only added the logo this year. It was during those time that I was trying to learn how to animate. I highly recommend the book The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams. The book contains VERY USEFUL tips on how to create great animation.

1/12/21: uploaded more info about Snoboscis on MVTW page

1/10/21: uploaded a colored version of Tusk Rat AND a thumbnail sketch of the next monster on MVTW page. Also uploaded NyahooASL handshapes that I almost forgot about. I made this back in 2016 but I decided to put it in the new section after 2017-2018 Racket comics. I named the section Racket Arts and it is where I put in my concept arts and illustration of Racket, both old and new, but not the comic. I still have some of the old gif of Nyahoo Kitty making signs. I might upload those every 2 days or something like that.

1/8/21: uploaded an inked illustration of the Tusk Rat on MVTW page. I don't know if I'll do a color version or not. I'll think about it. I also added an allegory too.

1/7/21: uploaded a new monster(Tusk Rat) in MVTW. The art is not finished but is a work in progress. I will try to finish it as soon as possible. Also I can't believe I forgot this but in my backup drive I have several gifs of Nyahoo Kitty making some ASL signs as well as ASL fingerspelling chart. I will also upload those as well after finishing up the Tusk Rat illustration. And another thing, in some of the monster data on their habitat, I mentioned some unknown places like Miyazya and Gothyka. Those are part of the monster's world and I will be creating a map of it at some point.

1/4/21:uploaded a new monster(Hoobert) in MVTW page, also I can't help but feel I am the only website on neocities without a freaking web button DX. I'll try to make one eventually...

1/3/21: added Racket comic strip #113, Yep, that's it. The last one of Racket 2017-2018 and I hope you all enjoyed it. Don't expect 2019 or 2020, since I made none. But like I said before, I will make some new Racket comics this year. But before I do so, I want to improve the art style a bit and redesign some of the characters. I will post concept arts and character sheets once in a while. I will also work on MVTW too(btw I have a new monster for tomorrow). I can't exactly post everyday like I used to with the old Racket comics so I might have to set up a new schedule for when I post newer contents. I might post around 6-9:00 pm every 2-3 days or something like that, I don't know. First I got to get into the groove!

1/2/21: added Racket comic strip #112

12/31/20: added Racket comic strip #111. Wow! I can't believe tomorrow will be 2021. I will be taking the day off tomorrow since it's the new year. After that, I will resume posting the last two comic strips of Racket 2017-2018. Then I would pretty much be done reuploading all my Racket comic strips from my old blog. I do not have any Racket comics made in 2019 nor in 2020. But...I have special plans in 2021. I will be making a lot of concept arts and more comics featuring Racket and his friends. At least the way I have been visualizing the new Racket comics, there will be many more new characters coming along the way and plenty of funny and weird stories to tell. I will try to give the comic a very cartoony style with lots of hilarious gags and cartoon physics reminiscent of Looney Tunes, Max Fleischer cartoons, and classic 90s Nicktoons. Some of my established characters need some redesign. I think Racket and Nyahoo Kitty(aka Caddy, also Nyakit) look fine so far. Roger and Mr. Con may need a little improvement in the character design but it's mostly a minor thing. Candy, however, was ridiculously hard to draw(mostly because of her large pigtail hairstyle). She is the one that needs the most redesign. Beside the Racket comics, I will also be working on MVTW, creating new monsters and some comic strips. I can't wait to start creating some more comics in 2021! I am sure glad that 2020 will be over soon. What a nightmare year that was! I have my fingers crossed in the hope that 2021 will be a better year. Anyway I hope you all have a Happy New Year!

12/29/20: added Racket comic strip #109

12/28/20: added Racket comic strip #108

12/24/20: added Racket comic strip #105. Tomorrow I am going to take a break from posting Racket comic since tomorrow will be CHRISTMAS!!!! I hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY HOLIDAY!!!!

12/15/20: taking a break from posting Racket comic today so I uploaded another monster on MVTW page! Ok, there was a stupid bug before but I got it fixed. All is good...for now.

12/14/20: added Racket comic strip #96 in Racket page, added art info on Fredward drawing in MVTW page

12/13/20: added Racket comic strip #95 on the Racket page, also added more data(the allegory and pronunciation) to Fredward in MVTW page. Just to make it clear, the allegories in Vita Monstra tend to be based on secular everyday life lesson and not based on religious allegory like in the Medieval Bestiary.

12/12/20: I am taking a break from posting Racket comic for today. I will post more tomorrow. Instead I will FINALLY introduce MVTW also known as MONSTERS VS. THE WORLD!!!! Check out the MVTW page! I am not going to upload MVTW everyday like I do with Racket comic but may post one a week if I have an idea. I will also add more to the monster's data if I have any.

12/4/20: added Racket comic strip #87

12/3/20: added Racket comic strip #86

12/2/20: added Racket comic strip #85, the next few comic strips will feature some dialogues written in a unique writing system called SignWriting. For those who are curious, here's the website that teaches SignWriting:SignWriting website. Bear in mind that I am not exactly fluent in ASL but I had taken 3 courses on it at a university so I do have some knowledge about the syntax and vocabulary and et cetera. I find the language to be quite beautiful and I really enjoy learning it!

12/1/20: added Racket comic strip #84 to Racket page and added snow effect to the home page(it's temporary, just for December and Christmas). I got the snow effect from this website

11/30/20: added Racket comic strip #83

The 2017 art style will be somewhat different, perhaps a little more cartoonier, but will still have plenty of humors.

11/18/20: added Racket comic strip #71 to the Racket page

11/17/20: Got my power back! Thank goodness! And thank you all for your patience, I really appreciate it! Now I can resume the upload! Added Racket comic strip #70 to the Racket page

11/16/20: Due to power outage yesterday, I was and still am unable to access my PC to upload some more Racket comic. The powers still out right now and I cannot post anything till the power is back. I will be on a temporary hiatus.

11/14/20: changed some website design, removed some old pages and added a new page called 'My Arts' with filter search, reversed the order of Racket comic strips with beginning of comic at the bottom and latest at the top, removed the dropdown that were under the images(I decided that they were too messy and looks too much like popup ads), added MVTW page with background(it is still under construction and it will still be awhile for me to get things ready until I begin posting some arts and comic strips there), added Racket comic strip #69 to the Racket page

ABOUT

Hello and thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Dave and I am a cartoonist based in the USA. Two of my webcomics are Racket and MVTW(Monsters vs. The World).

Nyahoo Studio is named after my old, defunct blog. The name, Nyahoo, is based on a Japanese onomatopoeia for meow, which is ‘nya’, and an English interjection ‘yahoo!’ It's also based on a catchphrase of one of my cartoon character, Nyahoo Kitty.
