Welcoming to Drawger
posted: October 30, 2006
Olaf is glad to be part of this wonderful website called Drawger. Having watched Drawger often from my studio in Saint Petersburg, Russia I have come to admire many American illustrators very greatly. While American artists may not get the special training that we do in Russia, Olaf still believes that many are as good as him. Many Americans love the president Ronald Reagan and we in Russia are also pleased by the President of yours. Olaf has made this wonderful portrait of him which can be shared with you now. Olaf knows you will enjoy it greatly. It can not be purchased as it is very special to Olaf. Olaf looks forward to speaking Americans at Drawger.

Ronald Reagan was an interesting President. What great timing, we have an election in America next week. Thanks for reminding us of our great former President, Ronald Reagan, in these special times.
Robert Saunders October 30, 2006
Olaf, Love your work! Ronald Reagan is not with us anymore, but your love of his legacy is soothing to all of us here. You know, he was from Hollywood, and was a great actor. Did you paint that sublime portrait on velvet? That is great! Some here feel painting on velvet is tacky, but you are challenging conventions. I saw lots of paintings on velvet in Hawaii. Have you ever been to Hawaii?
Leo Espinosa October 30, 2006
Olaf, Leo has been a fan of your work for the longest time! Welcome to Drawger!
Zina Saunders October 30, 2006
I particularly appreciate the "dot of life" you have put into his eyes, Olaf.
David Goldin October 30, 2006
Welcome Olaf, I'm so happy I could cry. I love your work.
Tim OBrien October 30, 2006
Oh YOU got that job...I was up for that. It was between you, me and a lunatic. Amazing

Olaf? You must be one of those Norwegian Russians. A darn good portrait of a darn good president......and jellybean eater. We knew he was a great actor....but as president he won all the Academy awards. Of course, he was a deconstructionist..." Mr. Gorbachev....take down that wall!"
Zina Saunders October 30, 2006
I also appreciate the way you've captured the gently folding leather nature of the Ronald's face skin.
Olaf October 30, 2006
Olaf is so happy for the warm welcoming from the Drawger. Olaf is inspired very much and will be excited to be showing you many of Olaf's latest wonderful art. Olaf is sorry to hear of your president is dead? Do you have another one yet?
Robert Hunt October 30, 2006
It must be a good painting...his eyes are following me around the room!
Zina Saunders October 30, 2006
No, Olaf. Not an ELECTED one, no.

Добро пожаловать к olaf Drawger. Как вы делаете прожитие с вашим искусствоом в России?
Olaf . October 30, 2006
It is good that my language is spoken here. But I am fluency in English also. In case you do not read my language, the Drawger welcomes me to here and asks how I make my living.
