Abstract


T.O. Honiball was a gifted comic strip artist and cartoonist (pictorial humorist), honoured and loved by his people during his lifetime. He spent most of his long and famed career as an artist working for in Cape Town. He is remembered chiefly for his strips (Uncle Casper), (Jackal and Wolf) and (Adonis and company), but he also made a huge impact as a cartoonist. His cartoons are the focus of this article and are as such subdivided into the categories political and social cartoons, as well as cartoons for newspapers and magazines and lastly cartoons meant for exhibitions. The cultural-historical value of his work should be interpreted within the context of the period in which he lived.

T.O. Honiball was 'n begaafde strokies- en spotprenttekenaar (pikturale humoris) wat in sy leeftyd deur sy volksgenote geëer en bemin is. Hy het 'n lang en roemryke loopbaan as tekenaar gehad, waarvan die grootste deel by die Nasionale Pers in Kaapstad deurgebring is. Hy word veral onthou vir sy strokiesreekse en , maar het as spottekenaar ook groot impak gemaak. Sy spotprente word in hierdie artikel ondersoek in die kategorieë politieke spotprente, sosiale spotprente, prente vir koerante, tydskrifte en prente vir uitstallings. Die kultuurhistoriese betekenis van sy werk moet binne die konteks van sy tyd vertolk word.
