Director/photographer Tomas Leach has been working on a series of short (less than 2-minute) videos about how creative people work. He calls the series “Little Scraps of Paper”: each video shows how an artist records his or her ideas, usually in a notebook, and stores them for later revision.

You can see more of Leach’s videos on his Vimeo page.
