Depressed Altered Book

I have struggled with depression off and on since childhood. Most of the time it strips away my creative energy. When I am depressed I don’t usually make art. On a few rare occasions I have. This is an example of one of those times. This altered book is very dark. It was cathartic to create. Sometimes it helps to get the darkness out and onto something. Don’t worry. I am not in this head space anymore. Some have looked through this and inferred that I was upset with someone as it does refer to disappointment and wasting time on someone. It is no one in particular , but maybe a symbolic someone, or maybe even myself. It was always more about the emotion and the expression than about the meaning.
