Aislin is the pseudonym Terry Mosher uses as the editorial cartoonist for the Montreal Gazette. He was born in Ottawa in 1942 and attended school in Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec City. He graduated from Montreal's École des Beaux-Arts in 1967. He worked for the Montreal Star following graduation and moved to the Gazette in 1972.
Aislin's work has been syndicated throughout Canada and he has freelanced for such publications as the New York Times, Time magazine, Punch, and Harper's. He has published some 30 books, either collections of his own works or books that he illustrated. He has won two National Newspaper Awards and prizes from the International Salon of Caricature. In 1985 he became the youngest person ever to be inducted into the Canadian News Hall of Fame. In 1997-98, Montreal's McCord Museum hosted a joint exhibition of the best caricatures of Aislin and Serge Chapleau, the editorial page cartoonist for Montreal's La Presse.
