Hop Spot Evokes Gen Z-Meets-Warhol Coolness

Cajsa Lilliehook covers the best in virtual world screenshot art and digital painting

Hop Spot is cool. He doesn’t have to try to be cool. He just is. What is he doing in this picture “Winner”? Standing, his hips slightly canted. Is he even making eye contact? We don’t know. But he’s cool, without doing a dang thing. The effect of black and white with the orange is also cool.

32229662205_cdc3cac2d6_cIn “music lover drunker dreamer” Hop Spot is so cool he doesn’t need punctuation. With his knit scarf and black wool coat, he seems like a Gen Z Andy Warhol.


This untitled pic gives off the Gen Z Andy Warhol vibe as well. I hope he opens up a Factory  in Second Life where folks hang out, make films, art, and have happenings. He might even invite one of the original Factory stars who has an avatar in Second Life and creates SL/RL art. 

Hop Spot takes pictures of himself all around Second Life. He visits cities and seasides and snaps photos and he gives off a real sense of cool, not the affected disinterest of coolness poseurs but that feeling of being absolutely comfortable as he is. It’s relaxing into yourself that makes a person cool, not ennui.
