This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in Long Beach, California in 1944, Richard Mock died on July 28, 2006 in Brooklyn, New York.

He learned lithography and block printing at the University of Michigan, while studying on a football scholarship.  Mock earned a Bachelor's Degree  in 1965,  and had his first solo exhibition in 1972 in Soho, New York, where he resided since 1968.  An invitation to the 1973 Whitney Biennial followed in 1973, and in 1980 he participated in the Times Square Show, the same year he was the official portrait painter of the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.

An interest in politics led to a career in political cartooning, and Mock became well-known for his satiric linocut illustrations on political and social issues, which appeared between 1980 and 1996 on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times.

In the late 1990's, he created a sculpture series called "Money Lures," which consisted of large fishing lures made of commercially shredded American currency.

Mock taught art at New York public schools from 1998 to 2002, and his work was exhibited  in several venues in New York City.
