lc: yes, I curated an entire show called "Merry Titmas" which featured nothing but boob related art, from massive pink squirting boob fountains, oil paintings, to chandeliers. A portion of the profits went to the Susan G Komen foundation and the show featured the one and only topless photo of me every taken (and I'm 99% sure ever will be taken) by my good friend and celebrity photographer, Austin Young.
nbs: since day one I don't think I've made any secret about how much fantasize about being engulfed into your cleavage
lc: I'm the only girl who drops weight and goes up a cup size. True story.
nbs: "sigh!" I'm imagining they've only helped your career?
lc: As a journalist they didn't do anything, as I write the articles, not my boobs. As a curator and girl with a baby voice I have to work ten times harder to be taken seriously. I mean, they have certainly helped me as a "personality" or a pin up girl, but those things are'nt what pays my bills. But they have helped me get press.
nbs: That goes a long way.
lc: Who when writing about me compare me to Jessica Rabbit which I find very flattering (thank you Lina Lecaro from the LA Weekly). so I am aware they help my visibility.
nbs: I don't know how related this is, but my visibility increased when I started dressing up like satan. Having a memorable image makes a world of difference
lc: Absolutely. It's all a brand.
nbs: I've been so impressed with how you're right in there doing what you want. I just love that about you, an artist and helping other artists. Would you say you have a "thing" for artists?
lc: I have a thing for all creative types. I have instant respect for anyone who has the ability to make people think or feel.
nbs: I'm the same way. I get so disappointed when I meet someone and they admit to having zero creative outlets. Right or wrong, I kinda write them off if I hear that.
lc: I do the same, because I know I wont be able to relate to them, unless they're senior citizens, then I help them find something creative because I love old people.
nbs: But have no doubt, Lenora, I have been impressed with how you've stayed on the scene and in the game for as long as you have.
lc: Oh man I'm only 28 years old. I have soooooo much more to accomplish
nbs: So let me just say, I'm thrilled to have you back as a Super Chic, and I have to admit, part of me hopes that having you aboard means I might be able to get more photos of you to post there. I know you're not modeling professionally... but looking at you it seems like a crime you're not.
lc: Well I have been paid to model so I suppose that isn't entirely true. It's just not my main focus. I'm actually appearing in four books and an ad campaign this year and I'm about to model for Clive barker and the Olivia paintings are coming out. I also have a tv show in development called Apocalipstick with Angus Oblong (The Oblongs) and Prudence Fenton (Liquid Television, Pee Wee's Playhouse) that I'm very excited about.
