The latest digital trend to sweep social media, the “Animal Crossing Art Challenge” has players of the wildly popular Nintendo Switch game re-creating their favorite album covers using K.K. Slider, the islands’ celebrity character, as the centerpiece.

Though it’s unclear where exactly the trend originated, fans are sharing their own versions of the Animal Crossing Art Challenge across TikTok, Instagram and Twitter.
