Meet PhotoSpin's New Pair Of Talented Artists: Yael Weiss and Avi Blyer

SAN PEDRO, Calif. - December 17, 2010 - PhotoSpin, www.photospin.com, a leading provider of stock photography by subscription introduces their first artist couple, Yael Weiss and Avi Blyer.

"As stock contributors we enjoy the freedom to create our own illustrations and explore new and exciting areas in graphics and font design." says Yael Weiss and Avi Blyer.

The gifted duo both work as 2D animators, characters designers and illustrators. Each found their creative bliss during childhood: Yael found hers while doodling on all her notebooks and classroom walls. Avi was less 'hands on' and discovered his creative interest while watching Disney's "Jungle Book" for the seventh time. He then decided to become an animator.

Although both artists took different paths after graduating from high school, their paths crossed in an animation studio where Yael met Avi, her boyfriend and partner, who was working there as a directing animator at the time. Yael took the road to Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem where she studied animation. During her work on her graduation film it became clear to her that she enjoyed designing characters the most and would become a character designer. After she graduated from Bezalel Academy, Yael worked for several years in the animation studio where she met Avi. She now works as a freelance animator and character designer for several leading internet and cellular companies in addition to being a stock contributor. Avi took a different course and began working at Israel's largest animation studio as a trainee and eventually became a lead animator. Over the years he has been privileged to work as a supervising animator and an art director for various TV productions, well known advertising agencies, and several major internet companies. Avi is currently working on two independent projects: a short animated film and a satiric comic book.

Yael's images can be purchased either individually or through a PhotoSpin subscription service.
