Mosher has done three covers for TIME magazine and his work has been published in at least two dozen books including The Hecklers: A History of Political Cartooning (1978), The Anglo Guide to Survival in Quebec (1983), Drawing Bones: 15 Years of Cartooning Brian Mulroney (1991), Hysterically Historical Rhymes (1996) and One Oar in The Water (1997). A baseball enthusiast, he is a member of the Baseball Writers Association of America and a jury member of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. He has also drawn interpretive sketchbooks of his travels in Russia, Northern Ireland and North Africa. He adopted his daughter Aislin's name as his professional signature when she was born in 1965.
In 1993 Aislin became the first artist to have his cartoons denounced by an MP in the House of Commons (Hon Bob Layton, PC Member for Lachine, Québec) as "a crime against fundamental Canadian values of decency and mutual respect." In 1997 he and his counterpart at La Presse, Serge Chapleau, were honoured by the McCord Museum in Montréal with a major joint exhibition.
