Here's Looking At You
Illustration by Geoffrey Moss


Geoffrey Moss exhibited a number of his original oil paintings at the Audart Gallery during 1997, as well as a collection of his political drawings. His work was extremely well-received.

Geoffrey Moss is best known for his political drawings, many of which have been published in his book "The Art And Politics of Geoffrey Moss" (with a Foreward by Dan Rather). He was the first illlustrator in the country to be syndicated "captionless. Through his drawings, he provides an interesting and humorous perspective on our politics and our world.

To his credit, he has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize; has three university degrees and is a teacher and lecturer on conceptual thinking. And, he continues to be the premier syndicated conceptualist in newspaper graphics.

Geoffrey's work has appeared in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and many others. His drawings have been exhibited at the Kennedy Center, Pompidou Center, Robert Hull Flemming Museum and Newport Art Museum. Most recently, Moss had a solo show of paintings in a New York gallery.

Moss has also worked on many special projects including designing a T-shirt for the Bruce Springsteen Hungerthon in support of World Hunger Year. He also created the Star-Man campaign for Christmas windows in the Paul Stuart stores in Chicago and New York, which won an award for outstanding creativity. In 1994, Moss was commissioned to commemorate the Rockwell Centennial for the new Norman Rockwell Museum.

To help raise money for the Special Olympics, Moss painted the "Cracker Jack Kid & Hotdog" card for the traveling show "The Artist & The Baseball Card." Moss continues to write and illustrate children's books, among them "Arthur's Artichoke" and "Henry's Moon." Moss was set consultant for the "Next Wave" production of "Bob Berkey's Power Project" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. For the last few years, he has photographed and interviewed bikers from around the country, which resulted in the publication of his book "The Biker Code", in collaboration with Stuart Miller.

Geoffrey's paintings were exhibited at
The Good News Cafe in Woodbury, Connecticut, in 2005.
