I haven't done a self-caricature in a while. I figured that if I'm going to do it, I may as well treat myself like a client and give it some effort. Turned out to be a lot of fun... except the client was a little pushy.
The "sponsors" are one of my favorite things to create when making Shortcuts. Here are some of my favorites.
Jack Rabbit Black (Rabbits) . Splint Eastwood (First Aid) . Lucile Ball (Golf)
Jelly Seinfeld (Jellyfish) . Spotty (Leopards)
O-Sean Connery (Ocean) . Homer Simeon (Gorillas)
Virtual Tour of "Shortcuts - The Art of Jeff Harris."
The show was exhibited at the Isla Gallery in Guam in February 2013. It featured original artwork, some of my favorite "sponsors," a behind-the-scenes section showing how an issue of Shortcuts is created, and 500 issues of Shortcuts.
Chicken kelaguen is a local dish that is very popular in my hometown island of Guam. It makes a great side dish and is delicious when served on a toasted corn tortilla. This recipe uses a boneless chicken breast for ease of preparation. (Using a whole chicken that has been grilled over a wood fire provides the best flavor.)
1 Chicken Breast
2 or 3 Lemons
1 Small Onion
1/4 Cup Chopped Green Onions
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Grated Coconut
2 tsp Chopped Hot Red Peppers
Love. Never forget to add love.

Mix chicken, onions, pepper and coconut in a bowl.
