WHAT IS JAPPA DOING TO MY MINECRAFT?
Changing the textures! Except for a few, like the Creeper.
Across all versions? YEP, both on Java and Bedrock. You cannot escape my sweet, sweet textures.
When? Soon! In the Beta Resource Pack, where all my beloved pixels live.

Jasper Boerstra is a contractor who is currently working for Mojang Studios as the Lead Artist for Minecraft. He was hired to change the great majority of the old textures in the game. Most of his changes to the game's textures took effect in the Texture Update, and he has since continued to create textures for new blocks, items, and entities.
