First and foremost, thank you for showing interest in me and my work!
My name is Gabby Valle but I go by ArcadeTurtle online! My name comes from my love of video games (and retro) and my obsession with turtles! I mean, they're just the cutest!! (Not to mention how prominent they are in video games)
I'm a 100% self taught artist with many dreams and aspirations. I love to create art in many forms ranging from digital to traditional to handcrafted with my tiny paws...erm hands...
I'm a queer latine who wants my art to inspire those who are also from marginalized backgrounds and show them, yes they can make it! I am diagnosed with GAD, Depression, and C-PTSD and I love to use art as a creative outlet. My art serves many purposes for me and my mental health, and I hope it inspires you too!
Please consider me for your next project or feel free to browse my shoppable ready-made work! I'm always up for a challenge and to learn new things to expand my range, but I typically enjoy cartooning and abstract work! I hope to become a published children's illustrator, and to become a full time creator!
