Lily Le, a.k.a. Pretty Pork Chops, is an artist and student of life. She is a collector of tattoos and piercings, loves to learn about outer space, and harbours a deep aversion towards oppressive behaviours that are pervasive in cultural norms. After all, that is a core symptom of being an artist – to challenge and question the world as we’ve come to know it. She takes a moment to answer some pressing questions.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE ME:
Sleepy. Silly. Short
MY FAVOURITE PLACE IN THE WORLD:
I don’t know if I can think of a specific place I love very much but I love being able to see the Milky Way when I go to more secluded areas.
THE LAST THING I DID THAT SCARED ME:
I stood on the top of the back of a pew recently to hang up some lights for a booth I was working. I thought it would tip over but those things are hundreds of pounds so it turned out ok, but still, when I first stepped onto it…
MY GREATEST VICE:
I’m not sure how to measure the greatness of my vice, but I have a terrible weakness for lingerie and beautiful accessories and it is Very Bad for my wallet.
SOMETHING I’D LIKE TO IMPROVE ABOUT MYSELF:
I’m trying to get into the habit of writing more. It’s come to a point where I just have a “to-write” list but it’s getting so long!
FAVORITE CHARACTER IN A BOOK/FILM/STORY:
Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time is a long time crush, and life and style inspiration.
A REAL PERSON THAT I ADMIRE:
I have this one professor I look up to a lot because when I took her class, she was clearly so passionate and it really inspired me to do the work and be fully present when I came to class. This may seem like a very boring answer but i’m hoping to be a teacher and be as inspiring as she is some day! I still visit her sometimes
I’m terrible at talking about myself
