Stephen Palladino is a New York-based artist whose unique drawings are created by translating the random thoughts and ideas of his audience on Periscope.

The project, called 'The Late Night Drawing Show,' allows Stephen Palladino to interact with people through the social media app and get inspiration for artwork that might not otherwise be possible. He uses intricate line work that superimposes the portraits of many of his subjects and dabbles with both color and black and white renditions. By limiting the times he lifts his pen, Stephen Palladino's art takes on an abstract look that has a rhythmic feel that makes it wholly unique. With this, he shows the possibilities that come from not being concerned with the limitations of reality.
