Request / News

I have a special request for YOU, dear readers.
Some of you don't really know the bands I'm talking about, so I thought I'd make pages for each of those bands, with a little bio and stuff.
Problem is, there are so many bands, news ones entering the closet, that if I do that alone, it'll be up for 2008. Also, if I'm very obsessed with some bands, I know very little about others.
So I'm kinda requesting your assistance, to whoever wants to help, to gather info/write short bios of your favorite bands from the Closet.
If you're interested, send me a mail at
Requirement: you must have so much fun doing it that I don't have to ask you 10 times before I get it. ;-)
Little final note: the Advent Calendar will end on December 25th, and on that day also I will create a page with all of the Advent doodles. So if you missed some, you'll be able to see them all there. I will also make a New Year pic (no doodle, a real pic ;-) ). And I already got one comic under construction for 2007.
Keep lookin! Go commentin!

Lost Phone

"Teemu lost his phone and was standing on the table in Amadeus yelling at everyone to shut up so Janne could ring him and see if we could all hear it, was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time, especially as Janne was too pissed to dial the right number."
(written by ~DIA~ on the Eurobands forum here)

I think this is self-explanatory. Just a little note: Amadeus is a crowded bar in Tampere. So yeah. Lol.
Don't forget to check everyday for the Closet Advent Calendar here!

Advent Calendar

Happy December to everyone!
I decided that I'd put up some goodies on Closet Inc. everyday until December 25th. I'll only post this link once, but it's available on the first page of Closet Inc.
The page will be updated everyday with a new Closet Finn, so if there's stuff you want on it... save it quick!
Closet Inc. Advent Calendar

(I take this opportunity to remind you that Closet Inc has more or less moved to Googlepages. This blog will be updated with comics too, but the Advent Calendar will only be posted on Googlepages.)

The Pants Intervention

Situation: Requested by Pam and Tina at, this comic is featuring the (Finnish, of course) band Day Eleven. The idea: Luca, the drummer, likes to do band practices... in underwear (fact). The band has had enough and plots a Pants Intervention to put some... well, pants on him.
Plans fails when Kimmo gets spotted by the League and gets chased because of his beard.
(Oh, and little blue-helmet guy is Olli. The hocket helmet is a lucky helmet and it makes him win pool competitions. What he's holding is, indeed, a pool stick. And yes, the "let go of your stick" order was meant to be ambiguous.)


(Janne (dreads), Matti (blonde), Olli, Kimmo (beard) and Luca over them)

Jussi is more -

Situation: Ok, I've been working on this one for HOURS, but hell, was it worth it! It's still making me laugh. The general idea is that Janne does not like his height to be mentionned, cause he's not very tall. Jussi is... well, you understand the point, so yeah. I promised not to make fun of Janne's height, but of his ~complex~ about it. Done.
We love you, Janne. <3

Kris, featuring the eyebrows

Situation: Well, our dear Christus decided to make his look yet more original. If I don't know whether this was the real reason or not, it would be a logical solution. I mean, Kris really does seem to live for his music; sacrificing eyebrows? That's nothing.
He's better keep the makeup on though, without, it looks weird.
THERE, Tina. You got your Kris comic. Now leave me alone for a couple of months :P

New Old Comics!

Confusing title...Well, it's quite simple. I mentionned that I'd be redrawing some of the old comics I published, well, I actually more like "rearranged" them. Rescanned them, cleaned them and colored them with photoshop - Gods and Godesses bless photoshop. So here are the first 3 I did - in 2 days.

"Lash me with your whip..."

This one was inspired by the For My Pain... song "Dear Carniwhore", sang by Juha Kylmänen (who is also singer for Reflexion). In said song, the chorus is as follows:
"Licking your bloody lipsSmiling and sucking your fingertipsLash me with your whipI'm your slaveMy dear Carniwhore"
So yeah. I took it litteraly. Singers, be aware of what you're singing. Lol.


Ok, I may be shooting my own foot by displaying this one here. Featuring: Teemu Rajamäki, bassist for Uniklubi. The joke: in French (my first language), the pronounciation of his name is exactly like "T'es mou", contracted form of "Tu es mou", which means "You are soft", more in a "You are not hard" way. Finns will have understood the joke at this point, I think. "Lerppu" is in Finnish, and it's how we planned to explain it to Teemu. I just pictured his reaction to it, and drew it there. *chuckles* We wanted to tell him ourselves, but my comics are getting broadcasted out of my control, so I guess we can forget about that.


Again, featuring members from Uniklubi, Jussi and Janne Selo, respectively singer and guitarist/back vocalist. In their first video, Rakkauta Ja Piikkilankaa, Janne has his head against Jussi's shoulder and chest, and apparently has his mouth opened (see it at 3:55 in the video, but it's quick, so keep a sharp eye). So we joked around that, also considering that we got a picture of them kissing. The important fact in all of this: they are brothers. (Janne is the older one)
So it's ~incest~, but it's the Selo brothers, so it's Selocest.

(You think that this idea is sick? You should read a couple of the many fanfictions that take it much further than that... lol)

So yeah, that's it. More to come. I'm not gonna arrange them all, cause some of them are just doodle, not proper to be redrawn or not worth the time. If you got a request, send me a message specifying which comic you'd like to be redrawn. Until then...

League 11 - Janne's punishment

Situation: Janne, if you ever read this, we love you. Really. We just don't agree with your hair and beard. But we still love you.
Overdue League comic. Janne (Uniklubi) cut his hair during summer, but I needed to find the right inspiration and idea. (Thanks to Tina for the idea of the way to torture poor Janne)
Please note that I'm incredibly strong in that first picture, dragging a man single-handedly. Also note that Pinkass and I actually really don't know how to play guitar.
Oh, and that "twing-ga-ling-ga-ling" sound by Pinkass? She's trying to be a guitar. No, indeed, she has no future as a stringed instrument.

By the way: we can now celebrate the first encounter of a Finn with his Closet version! Vivian (Lovex) saw the "Theon is Vivian's." comic that Tina put on her MySpace. Said that it "is great....hehe=)". So if other Finns come by and see this, please, Finns, leave a comment or something. If you want to throw rocks at me, I'll give you an address for you to send them here.


(With the beard. I don't agree. Do you?)

Brokeback Vuorinen

Remember, the Closet moved! Go here for more accessible Archives!

Situation: A little wordplay of a very tired Laury. I've heard (read) that Jussi69's last name is Vuori, which means "mountain". Aaah, you see it now, huh? Nightwish's Emppu got "Vuorinen" as a family name, so yeah.
Brokeback Vuorinen. Yeah, Jussi is kinda wondering "What the hell went through her f*cked up head" and he's too dressed. I know, I know.
No needs'a reference, right?

Let's Celebrate!!!

I've finally got to 50 comics for the Closet! Yay me!
There's at least 7 more to come. 2 tomorrow, maybe more, maybe different ones... If I'm to update weekly, I need to keep some of them for later or I won't have any idea left to update with!
And remember: like Turtle, duuude. and League Hunt!, you CAN request comics. Be a little more specific than "with Ville in", though.
I should do a 50 comics celebration comic...

Turtle, duuude.

This comic has been requested by: Tina.
See, Antti Anatomy (bassist for Negative) owns a TURTLE.
TURTLE are cool, duuude. (Finding Nemo anyone?)
Rain likes Antti much. So here's Antti and his turtle.
(And Teemu, but that's just for me.)

IPB Image
(Antti and said Finnish TURTLE)

Teemu is back in black!

Remember that the Closet has moved to a new address also!

Situation: Huuuuh. Maybe I should have gone softer on him. ^_^; Anyway.
Teemu is back to black! He dyed his hair, let us celebrate! Plus it grew a bit, so life is beautiful once again! :-D
(And no, in the first panel, my hand is not in a weird place. It's really just your imagination.)


(Tee and his beloved "Let's F*ck" Negative T-shirt)

League Hunt!

Remember that the Closet has moved to a new address also!

Situation: Ville got a brand new, ugly mustache. As members of the SISUWUBAF, it is our duty to cut it off.
I just never really mentionned which, of Ville or the mustache, we'd have to cut. Mehehe.
(for those wondering, no, I'm not fan of Ville. But of course, League work comes before anything...)
The lesson of this strip: Don't smoke, it'll get you killed. (and/or chased by crazy girls)
Strip requested by Heather. *waves* Hope you have fun in New York, hun! <3>


(Ville and the EEEWWW-gly mustache)

Little news about the Closet...


First, I will now try to update the Closet at least once a week. Yeah, I know, it's been a month (insert Scarlett's accent here) since I had put something up. I will try to avoid that. I already have much ideas for next strips, so I may well draw them now, complete them on computer, and save them for later. Muahahaha.

Strips to come

Ville needs to be hunted down; Janne needs a correction; Ville L needs to be welcomed better in the Closet; we have Vickings among Finns; and we've revisited a movie by a certain Ang Lee.

The Closet moved!

You can now find all the Closet Comics at It also includes the League section (under construction) and the SuomalaiSEKSI section (under construction as well). I will keep updating this page for a while, with regular reminders that well, we moved.

For suggestions, comments, complaints, requests, rocks to be thrown, please mail now to
So I'm off. Thank you. BYE.


Situation: When my friends are sad or feeling a little down, I like to hand out teddybears. I mean, virtual teddybears. Handed virtually.
So yeah, one night, two of my friends, fans of the Closet, felt sad, so I thought, let's draw a little Teddy-Jussi!
So I did.
Isn't he cuuuute?
