For lunch, a friend of mine and I drank cookie milkshakes inside the Los Angeles rose garden off of Exposition Park. We took these photos a few hours just before the park closed. I wore a rainbow striped dress from ASOS; the most colorful dress I own and pink tights from American Apparel.

Exposition Rose Garden in Los Angeles

I visited the Exposition Rose Garden in downtown Los Angeles, Sunday afternoon. The location is open to the public during daylight hours and serves as an urban oasis and photography nexus for weddings and family gatherings. Operated by the city, the location has been open since 1928.

The Magical Theater on Cartoon Brew

After screening at the Los Angeles Animation Festival, my film Magical Theater was added to one of the most popular animation blogs on the internet -Cartoon Brew!

 Kooky fun with women and fish! Calarts undergraduate thesis film by Jovanna Tosello, possibly NSFW. -Cartoon Brew

Magical Theater featured at 动画那些事™

My Calarts thesis film, "The Magical Theater" was recently featured on the 动画那些事™ website. I can't describe how excited I am to read a review of the film:  动画短片《The Magical Theater》 A Tim Burton reference -awesome. I included the original text and a rough translation:
《The Magical Theater》(魔幻剧场) 是Jovanna Tosello导演的一部二维动画短片。整个短片色彩和造型都非常大胆,没有完整的故事,似乎也没有特意突出的角色,是一部充满了象征和隐喻的影片。或许是其中反复出现“鱼”的原因,想起了提姆·伯顿(Tim Burton)的《Big Fish》。
"The Magical Theater," (Magic Theatre) is the Jovanna Tosello director of a 2D animated short film. The entire video color and shape are very bold, not the full story, does not seem to specifically highlight the role is a full of symbol and metaphor of the film. Perhaps in which repeated the "fish", I think of Tim Burton (Tim Burton), "Big Fish".
