This is a comic-strip in the spirit of Gary
Larson, but with a very Swedish touch. Carpe Diem jokes just about everything: from
Osama Bin Laden to polar bears and tweeting zebras. With no central characters,
the series is able to spin new ideas ad infinitum.
ErikssonBorn 1973 in Umeå in northern Sweden, he grew up in Hörnefors, the same
village as one of the country's football all-time greats, Gunnar Nordahl.
Today, Niklas works full-time as a comic-strip artist, and, continuing the
sporting theme, now lives and works in Röbäck, the same village as the
gold-medallist skier Per Elofsson. Despite his legendary neighbours, it is to
the sport of ice-hockey and his local team that his supporter allegiances lay. Other
allegiances include his girlfriend, and his dog, a Vorsteh with an enormous
nose that comes into its own when hunting grouse. Niklas enjoys winter sports
including rink bandy, especially when played in the great windswept outdoors.
