What is the most efficient way to get a pubic hair off a bar of soap? How much distance is required between two people when executing an air kiss? What body part follows the shoulder in the hokey pokey? How do I make myself look really, really angry? Matthew Vescovo, self-anointed master of the obvious, answers all these important questions and many more in Instructoart Lesson 1. Instructoart's informative yet aesthetically pleasing designs highlight the artist's uncanny ability to find moments that are both intimately personal, but undeniably universal. These moments range from the very obvious to the unspoken and, until now, unshared. The uniqueness of this book comes not only form its idiosyncratic content, but also its refreshingly simple visual language. Upon viewing each series of diagrams, you will realize that no matter how common or frivolous the subject matter, it has been well researched and painstakingly executed. Having this many Instructoart pieces conveniently accessible is like having a handy Human How To guide. And we all need one, sometimes, especially when trying to give a sex dancer a gratuity, to understand karma, to use a urinal, to proclaim one's own attractiveness, and to decide which people to trust one's children with.
