From The Vault - OilCan Drive City 2004

This page is a spread from yet another attempt to do an OilCan Drive comic book. I don't know which version of "OilCan Drive #1" this was but I think it was done sometime in 2004-2005.

I always liked the idea that the OilCan Drive world was a barren wasteland with population centers few and far between. And since I didn't want a simple city to be sprawled out across the landscape I thought it would be a neat idea to make these giant tower cities. The whole city is within this giant structure.

I thought it would make the city an easy place to defend from the outside elements, similar to a castle in the middle ages. Plus, I liked the fact that commerce and modern living were right there in the city while a stones throw away was the danger of the outside world.

Plus, it made for a fun place to try and break into as well as escape from when the going got tough.

And, it looked cool to boot.

You've got a lot of "bonus material" for any OCD collection you might put together!
