Early Days:

   Bearden was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He attended De Witt Clinton High School in the Bronx and completed his studies at New York University (NYU), graduating with a degree in science and education. He often put his education on pause to be a professional baseball player.

   After he started to focus more on his art and less on athletics, he took courses in art that led to him being a lead cartoonist and art editor for the Euclidian Society's (a secretive student society at NYU) monthly journal, The Medley.
