I'll list them from freely available to a bit harder to find to published elsewhere. ---Free Diagrams--- 1. Simple Dragon (2007, 61 steps) -The first computer-drawn diagram I ever did. http://www.mediafire.com/view/i7aotitjs6kb8qb/Simple_Dragon_-_ShukiKato.pdf 2.

I've been extremely idle on my DA page for the longest time and now I finally have some news to talk about; there's a new origami book featuring 12 origami works of Robert Lang, Sebastian Arellano, Marc Kirschenbaum, Jason Ku, Dan Robinson, Won Park (who has an awesome DA Page himself), and yours truly! The book is available on pre-order Amazon and will be officially released on the 15th of this month. Check out the previews! - http://www.behance.net/gallery/Origami-Masters-Bugs/9188403 - http://www.amazon.com/Origami-Masters-Bugs-Wars-Changed/dp/1937994104/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378492675&sr=8-1&keywords=origami+masters+bugs
