Somebody tell Mowgli he is late for rehearsals: Illustrator Tom Buch, with his affinity for music and animals, has created 'The Band of Beasts' collection which showcases animals playing instruments.

Tom Buch has brought gems such such as 'The Bear Bass', 'Monkey Beat” and 'Barry Black and White' to the art world: look out, 'Dogs Playing Poker.'

Prints of 'The Band of Beasts' can be found wherever Zoobooks are sold.

Implications - Taking a traditionally human activity and replacing it with animals provides viewers with a sense of unfamiliarity. In contemporary society, companies must try and shock viewers in order to gain their attention, and making alterations to a traditional product is a great way to do so.
