I assume that the book will have "cleaner" diagrams, and some explanation to go along with each step, but I managed to fold the mask using a combination of the video and images.

Also, I'd love to see Flying Carp, Attack of the Kraken, Flying Grasshopper and Crow diagrammed.

And if Wall-E gets diagrammed, I'll be buying it anyway.
Well, in the comments section, Chan mentioned this is the "easy" version. With the image on his oficial website, there are slight differences in the mouth and mustache. Otherwise, thanks for the links!

Nope. I know, it's very annoying. I have been waiting for so long for his book to come out, but now's the time most colleges are going through finals. It might be possible he is studyng. If so, he'll surely get back to work soon. :)

... if you go to his flickr, he clearly demarcates some models which he has diagrammed.

I hope it comes out soon, the wait is killing me! :x His models are too great for the wait. This is funny, people at my school and see what I make, and say that we (origamists) must have alot of patience, but right now, I have none for this book! :shock:

I know! I have all the patience in the world when it comes to precreasing a model, but none at all with everything else!

Just not too long. :) Waiting can be good, but you can't wait for every thing. It's like you're going to an amusement park (an origami world), you're riding a bunch of the rides that have no wait. (books that have already come out) Soon you get to the ques that take about an hour, hour and a half. (month, two month wait for the book) You see the brand new ride and it's a beast! You run over there just to see that the ine is not even open. (Brian Chan's book) It will open ome time next year, on top of that a four hour que. (waiting for the book to come out who knows when, then getting your book) You might not even get the chance to even ride that ride when it finally opens.

This is one of those imes when waiting is a pain, and not a pleasure. When you ordera book, you feel this small sence of satisfaction that you can actually wait for. Wait ing for the book to even come out all together is a whole other story.

Guys, it takes a really long time to write a book... it's not even been a year yet. I mean even if only half the diagrams were new, that's gotta be hundreds of hours of work, considering the complexity of his models.
