A few years ago Arnold took a long hiatus from drawing. But his passion for illustration has never left him. So when the itch came back to start drawing again, he joined other group of artists who shares the same goal....to be inspired and inspire others in reaching their artistic potentials. As a result, he created Spent Pencils.
These days, Arnold and crew are seen attending local comics conventions (and working their way outside of Canada), promoting their artwork. He has done pinps, graphic designs and collaborated on a few pages on a book doing some gray scale coloring over Vince Sunico's pencils. He is currently working on a personal project, co-writing and illustrating his creator-owned story called TOY Souldiers.
