Being your own boss is liberating but can often feel like you’re alone on an island. I’ve found that my productivity and business thrive the most when I surround myself and collaborate with other creatives, which is why I’m a huge fan of community working spaces like WeWork and movements like Create & Cultivate.

Lucky for me, WeWork at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood teamed up with Create & Cultivate founder Jaclyn Johnson for their Creators & Cocktail event last month in celebration of the WeWork Creator Awards… and they asked me to be a part of it.

The Creator Awards is WeWork’s global initiative recognizing and rewarding creators that are leading the way. WeWork has committed to awarding over $1 million to entrepreneurs, artists, small businesses, and nonprofits who are breaking new ground, have innovative ideas, and are passionate about their craft. The LA based event featured a fireside chat with Jaclyn Johnson, CEO & Founder of Create & Cultivate and author of WorkParty, and Jennifer Pauline, resident moderator of Fashion for Breakfast LA. Additional speakers included Rachel Sumekh, past Creator Awards winner and Co-Founder/CEO of Swipe Out Hunger, as well as Jon Slavet, WeWork Managing Director of U.S. & Canada West.

Putting our creative juices to the test, KJI created a custom mural design highlighting the award’s tagline “Creator State of Mind” and WeWork’s geometric and modern aesthetic. For two days leading up to the event KJI artists created the mural live at WeWork, finishing up the art during the first 30 mins of the event for all attendees to see. Once finished, the backdrop became a photo booth with the magic of CHALK SHOT. All the photos that night were watermarked with the Creator Awards logo and social handles, and then emailed directly to guests.

Here are some photo highlights of the mural creation live at WeWork and the CHALK SHOT photo booth magic during the event.
