JIM RISWOLD
Instructor — W+K12

Newsweek named him "one of the 100 most influential people in American culture." Jim Riswold is also a cancer survivor. After being diagnosed with leukemia he retired from a 20-year career in advertising to become a "fake artist" — his words. His "fake art" has become part of the permanent collection in galleries throughout the Northwest. Jim is currently helping run Wieden+Kennedy's experimental ad school, W+K12. He's also working on his next show about WWI called "The War to End All Wars That Fucked Up and Didn't End All Wars."
