Just a small info post about all the other sites where you can find me, in case my DA seems quiet (which it often is these days Sweating a little...  I'll still keep posting all the newest art here too, no worries about that!)

Art Tumblr:

-  The same artworks I'm posting here. Occasionally art advice reblogs & personal posts, but mostly it's for art only.

Random Tumblr:

- I'm just reblogging whatever interesting I happen to come across. There are some recurring themes though, like astronomy & space, languages, cool photography & art, creepy things, cats, insects, snakes & snails.

Inspiration Tumblr:

- Art I like.


- Personal stuff, art, complaining about my home country (Finland), interesting articles etc. 


- My store. You can buy all kinds of stuff from here: prints, cards, stickers, shirts, hoodies, phone cases, many things. If you ever feel there's something missing, let me know! I'm always happy to make more items available. Redbubble has a lot of discounts all the time, so check back on the site now and then!

- I keep forgetting to update it though..

My portfolio site: 

- I keep forgetting to update this as well...

So...yeah. I like to compartmentalize my internet life A LOT as you can see >_>
I was travelling when the questionnaire was posted so I couldn't do it back then, so I'll do it now!


1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

11 years…(how did that happen??)

2. What does your username mean?

Nothing really…but it’s based on my old Gaiaonline username (feel free to laugh) ”Kajo” which means ”glow” or ”glimmer” in Finnish. I wanted to use the name on other sites too, like Livejournal, but the username was already taken so it became ”Kajoi” because it sounded nice, and it has been my artist username ever since. 

3. Describe yourself in three words.

lazy, melancholic, dreamer

4. Are you left or right handed?

5. What was your first deviation?

it’s not available anymore, I think I deleted it at some point...but I think it was something made with Photoshop Elements when I didn't even know how to use layers or anything!

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Illustrations that take a long time to create. I prefer working many hours on one work instead of completing really many works quickly

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Classical realism, that’d be useful!

8. What was your first favourite?

Some work by mero-ix (in her old account) but it's in storage currently :/

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Beautiful faces, cold color themes, dark themes, ”quirky” works

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Only one?? uhhh maybe mynameistran in that case!

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I really don’t know, I haven’t really communicated with the artists here lately that much >_>

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I think the impact was biggest when I had just joined DA, and when I was still just a beginner (I was also very young back then, only 15)...I think seeing many works every day helped me to understand art better, and at the same time, it helped me develop my own style and also improve. I joined in 2004, and already in 2005, my art was nothing like it was one year before. 

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Digital tools. (I do miss traditional painting though, I should try it again sometime…)

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

I always create art in the same place; in my room, at my desk...but I do get most of my ideas in my bed, haha

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Hmm...I once set up a Christmas card exchange, and I promised to draw small cards for EVERYONE...maybe that was a mistake, because I had to draw card all the time, everywhere, especially during boring lectures XD but I got tons of cards and drawings in exchange, too, so it was fun to check the mail box every day!

Black River
I found an unfinished painting from 2006, and decided to finish it just for fun! Of course, my style & techniques have changed drastically in 10 years. Anyway, the original painting was about my original character who has long, red hair and that hair sometimes oozes bloody liquid….

The work on Tumblr:…

Check out the original work from 10 years ago (it looks so embarrassing today, but I'm glad to see my skills have developed drastically over the years!)…

I tried something new again: I found these VERY old sketches (I think the other was 7 years old and the other 5), printed them on paper and painted over them with gouache. It was a fun experiment, and I got to the best part, painting, immediately!

my art tumblr:
Cracked Steps
I've used this method before, but this is how it goes: take a photo or a picture, pretty much anything goes, and use the "cutout" filter in Photoshop to reduce the image to colored shapes. Then paint over what you see. It's great when you want to paint but have no ideas for the subject!
cracks in the armor...

I made steps for this as well, just for fun, will submit them soon

on tumblr:…

I had a thought that I should practice drawing backgrounds more, and using my own photos for that would be perfect, since I can do whatever I want with them. But when I started using the photos, it felt like I was visiting those places in the photos again. I could remember how I felt on that day and what I was thinking about when I took the photos. It felt really nostalgic, and it made me miss the places. That’s how I got the idea for this painting, and I hope it will become a series.

The photo I used as a reference for this was taken in Miyajima, Japan.
