Redraw refers to an art exercise wherein people recreate a still from animation in a different style. It is not to be confused with "redraw posts" wherein an artist draws one of their own pictures later to document how their style has changed.
While it's unclear where exactly the trend started, tweets with the hashtag #redraw used for the purpose of redrawing animation stills appeared as early as 2014. That year, pieces appeared featuring redraws of Sailor Moon (shown below, left) and My Little Pony: Friendships Is Magic (shown below, right).
Prior to an October 2018 surge in Redraws using a scene from Disney's Lady and the Tramp, artists posted their redraws of scenes and saw modest social media spread (examples shown below).
