You rarely will see Maksim Koloskov without a sketchbook with him. Maksim enjoys doing quick sketches wherever he is, and whatever catches his eye.
He might pause for few minutes of sketching while walking on a street, or pull out sketchbook standing in a line in grocery store to sketch an interesting character, or at the rock concert standing next to the stage.

For this show Maksim has selected sketches which he did mostly around Houston downtown, where he works in architectural design company Rottet Studio.
