The #StyleChallenge on Instagram is all about artists transforming their self-portraits into characters from popular cartoons, and people are loving it.

I love the drawings people are doing for this #stylechallenge hashtag, I can't stop looking at them.

Autumn Massaquoi, a 17-year-old student from London, was one of the first artists to take on the challenge. Her pictures got thousands of likes.

Massaquoi told BuzzFeed News that as a child she enjoyed both cartoons and drawing. "I love that with cartoons there are no limits to what you can create," she said.

People have praised the challenge for the diversity on show.

#stylechallenge you people are producing beautiful art and it's that kind of diversity that I want to see in the actual shows ❤️🙌🏼

This #stylechallenge is reminding me how I've always deeply desired more representation in cartoons. We need more multicultural characters.

It has now moved beyond Instagram and is taking place on other social media platforms.

Had to jump on the wave lol ✍🏾#stylechallenge #bdestudios
