Origami Heaven

Cloud 9 - Cartoons and poetry

The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell


  Cloud 9 is a little cottonwool-edged corner of this site devoted to my cartoons, poems and, in time, other kinds of writing.

Although I seem to devote an inordinate amount of time to it, folding paper is not my first or only love. Above everything else I love the world of ideas, words and language. If you have folded my origami designs you will already know this, of course, for I can never resist an unusual concept, an odd title, an outrageous pun or an edgy joke.

This love of the odd, outrageous and edgy is also reflected in my cartoons and poetry.
