The magazine featured Heinze's own stories, like 'Jopie McDopie', as well as the work of Peter van Dongen and Eric Heuvel.
In the 1990s he published 'De Studentencapriolen' gag pages in the quarterly Nobiles. Heinze is best known as a caricaturist on festivals, like De Stripdagen, and in the Magna Plaza shopping centre in Amsterdam. In 2013 he lost 132 pounds during his participation in the Dutch version of the TV show 'Obese'.
