About the artist
AISLIN, the name of Terry Mosher’s elder daughter, is the pen name that he has used for over fifty years working as a cartoonist in Montreal, primarily for the English-language daily newspaper, The Gazette. Mosher is also President emeritus of the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists and has served as a judge in International cartoon competitions, most recently in Portugal, Turkey, China, Australia Cuba, and South Korea.
In recognition of his charitable work and his contribution to political cartooning, Mosher was named an Officher of the Order of Canada in May 2003. He has also received honorary doctorates from McGill University (2007) and Concordia Universty (2018).
In March of 2017, a book was published, his 50th, entitled From Trudeau to Trudeau: Fifty Years of Aislin Cartoons. Then, from April to August, 2017, Montreal’s McCord Museum hosted a retrospective of Aislin’s 50 years of work that later moved to the Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery from October 12th to the 29th, 2017.
Presently, Terry Mosher is writing a biography of his mentor, long-time Toronto Star cartoonist, Duncan Macpherson.
