If Bob Ross was alive today he would have a youtube channel and then a Twitch channel. He would post pictures of trees and creeks and mountains on Instagram. He’d use crowd funding websites to continue his seasons of painting lessons. People would expect him to help them become famous as artists. Some people would learn a lot from him.
I imagine that people would make comments about how Bob seems to be on drugs, or question why Bob couldn’t button a few more buttons. There’d be comments of how drugs are bad and how he’s bad for children. Other people would use his shows to teach their children or themselves to pain. I already know thanks to Twitch that people would comment RUINED when Bob added a large tree in the foreground of a painting. There would be so many more Bob Ross memes…and people would make Bob Ross wallpapers for computers and phones and tablets. Maybe Bob Ross would be like Weird Al?
