(De Bodt/Kapelle 2003) Illustrated for 'De Teekenschool van Oom Daan' since 1918 in the magazine 'Jong Nederland'. (Wijk-Sluyterman 2002) He is considered one of the first Dutch comic artists, mainly because of his many strips for magazines and his How-to-Draw booklets. One of his best-known titles is 'De Neef van Prikkebeen' (1909), a story strongly inspired by Rodolphe Töppfer's 'Monsieur Cryptograme' ('Mijnheer Prikkebeen' in Dutch). Other books are 'Flip en Flap' (1920s), 'De Vroolijke Avonturen van Twee Kwaje Apen Jimmie en Pimmie' (1928/1929) and 'Dissy en Gemsy' (1932). Besides his books, Hoeksema was also drawing for magazines, such as the political satirical magazine De Ware Jacob. He was also one of the main artists for Jong Nederland in the 1920s, and he also contributed to the Flemish (Belgian) equivalent Na de School.
