Steven Burke is a France-based artist responsible for turning happy trees into depressed pieces of art. His 'Poor Little Trees' series features some pretty depressing tree carvings. Buzzkill alert for all you people having a good day.

Most of the trees in Steven Burke's 'Poor Little Trees' are sad. You can spot a smile or two, but it is hard to see amongst all the frowns. I can't tell if this is meant to be a statement about the logging industry and deforestation, or just a fun art project. Either way, Steven Burke sure has made some interesting art here.
