About the Author
Sean Tiffany lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife, Monika, a cactus named Jim, and a room full of entirely too many guitars. He has been a professional freelance artist and illustrator for the last twenty years working for companies such as Marvel Comics, Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated Magazine, Stone Arch Books, and The Geppetto Advertising Group.
In 1998 he wrote, drew, and self published his first comic book called Exit 6 which earned him a Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer of the Year Award nomination. His freelance illustration career has kept him away from comics for years but, no matter how hard he tried to kick the habit, his love for the medium just wouldn’t go away.
Sean’s newest project, OilCan Drive, combines a web comic, print comics, videos, art, and music. He loves working on the adventures of the little band in his head and he couldn’t be happier.

Well, three teenagers and an ape.
I’ve watched Sean Tiffany grow as both storyteller and illustrator for well over a decade now, from his initial endeavor, a wonderful vampire love story called Exit 6 to his current affection, Oilcan Drive. Trained in sequential art at the Joe Kubert School School of Design and Illustration in Dover, New Jersey, Tiffany’s approach to storytelling reveals a clear respect for amazing visual artists such as Will Eisner, Milton Caniff, Alex Toth, and Walt Kelly, peppered with liberal doses of illustrator Arthur Adams.
Tiffany’s sense of pacing mirrors Eisner’s transparent understanding of scene and emotional impact, while he mines the thematic and emotional queues of Kelly’s finest work in Pogo, only occasionally dabbling in the political. Oilcan Drive has the arresting rhythm and pounding energy of an up-tempo punk song exploring teenage angst, rebellion, and broken lives in a broken world.
With an ape.
Interestingly, Tiffany shows himself not only as a well-trained storyteller, but a musician as well, offering ironically punk versions of Bob Dylan covers under the banner of Oilcan Drive’s frenetic beats. On the comic’s website, OilcanDrive.com, Tiffany has carefully separated stories in various ‘tracks’ rather than ‘chapters’, supplementing the band’s tumultuous adventures with olden style magnetic tape icons — hinting that the challenges of future teenagers are echoes of the same issues they encounter today.
Only this time, there’s an ape. With a bass.
Oilcan Drive is manic when it needs to be, somber when it has to be, and always well-articulated. Guaranteed, it’s the only comic you’ll walk away from saying, “I gotta have a tour shirt…”
