We always love knowing more about our Voila users and the creative ways in which they use it. We reached out to one of them, Josué Menjivar, an Illustrator, cartoonist and author and he was happy to tell us more about himself and how he uses Voila.
Global Delight: Hi Josué, tell us something about yourself.
Josué Menjivar: I run a small illustration/comics business called Fresh Brewed Illustration, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I write and draw small press comics and enjoy illustration. I also teach at a local college.
GD: How did you come across the app?
JM: As a teacher for a publishing program, I believe that pictures are worth a thousand words. I needed something better than Apple’s default screen capture feature. I found out about Voila through MacUpdate and have enjoyed it since. I started using Voila with version 2. I am also a fan of Global Delight’s Boom application. It really makes a difference when I’m listening to music while drawing.
GD: What features come in handy for you?
JM: Voila has a gorgeous GUI and it’s simple to use. It has a lot of features that really enhance screenshots. I use it to capture screen grabs for tutorials and lectures for my Magazine Production class I teach at a local college. I also use the excellent video feature to record some lessons when I use a specific graphics application.
I also use Voila to capture the progress of a certain illustration I’m working on. It’s fun to see a drawing start as pencils and then take screen grabs of the colouring process all the way to the final result.
GD: What is a typical day in the life of Josué like with Voila?
JM: I usually take a lot of screenshots so I can share the process with people who go to my blog. Here is something I’m working on and a finished page. I also made the hard drive icons.
I send a lot of screenshots to my friends to show them what I’m working on.
Here is a screenshot of my Voila window:
GD: Thank you Josué, for sharing your story with us and our users.
JM: Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
