As an origami admirer with extremely limited skills (and even more limited patience), I'm always impressed by the artists who pull off works of art from paper. In the case of Brian Chan, however, I'm beyond impressed - I'm absolutely floored.

The artist accomplishes beautiful creatures from across the animal kingdom, but takes his work one step further by folding likeness of some of the most celebrated characters from the four corners of fandom. From comic books to anime and video games, Chan's work on both his Web site and Flickr account demonstrates a talent worth celebrating. After the jump, feast your eyes on a gallery of some of his raddest pop culture origami (or origami period) that you have ever seen.
