about the project

So, about "A Bearden Project" which created Brindle Rook:

Well, it started out of love.  It continues with laughter, or else we might cry.

Despite Brindle Rook's seemingly crass and angry content, there's a lot of passion that gives the Rook "je ne sais quoi".

What's with the name? Well, contrary to popular belief, the name Bearden actually means "Bearded".  It's an olde English word associated with not only having a beard but a tale; not a tail, mind you.  It was also closely tied to those bards who traveled great distances with wares, goods, and stories from far away.  Their travels often affecting their grooming to the stance that they were unable or it was unnecessary to shave---hence big beautiful beards.  

The Brindle Rook comes from my favorite thing in my life who is colored brindle and he is the one thing that has kept me strong over years of challenges.  

So, while our wares don't come from far and wide, they come with tales.  Some are obvious, some may not be.  I'm always here to answer your questions, should they arise.
