"D.C. Boonzaier is probably one of South Africa's most famous cartoonists/caricaturists and one whose satire was most influential on the political scene during the first quarter of the 20th century." - M. & E. Schoonraad: Companion to South African Cartoonists.

"As a cartoonist Boonzaier's fame is founded on his 'My Caricatures' and 'Rand Faces' and on the political cartoons he did for Die Burger." - DSAB I, p. 95.

Boonzaier's caricatures were greatly influenced by Japanese minimalism. He was the father of the famous Cape impressionist Gregoire Boonzaier.
