Further he continued “In the middle of the night after a shoot, I had to wine and dine some opal traders who were visiting from Australia to convince them to lend us their very special opals that ended up being little pigments in our larger rock opal.”

During an interview with PEOPLE, Bear-McClard’s uncle Peter McClard said “Michael was a teen rebel in the 60s and decided he was an artist and graduated with honors from San Francisco Art Institute and moved to New York,” adding “He is an amazing artist. Sometime in the ’70s he met Sebastian’s future mother, Liza Bear, a filmmaker and co-founder of Avalanche, an art magazine.”
He further added, “Sebastian was a great, totally New York-bred kid and spent his youth being dragged to cool art events, parties and surrounded by the hippest of the hip New York art scene in the 80s and 90s.”
