Nathaniel Russell – Public Notice x The Quiet Life collaboration
QL x &PENS x PUBLIC NOTICE
The second collab is with &Pens Press and Public Notice.
Public Notice is an ongoing zine, featuring many handcrafted flyers for public events, by artist Nathaniel Russell.
The expanded and revised second edition of PUBLIC NOTICE is 68 page zine (twice the size of the original!) filled with a collection of fake flyers created by Indianapolis resident and artist Nathaniel Russell. The flyers in Public Notice run the gambit from Found Dog, Idea Party, and stretch all the way to an ad for Grampa’s Waterfall Skate Jam (complete w/ Animal Chin trivia contest). Plus, an intro written by Joel Hodgesson of Mystery Science Theater 3000! Public Notice, published by & Pens Press in a limited edition of 500 copies.
To celebrate the release of the Public Notice’s second issue we teamed up with Nat and &Pens to produce a tote bag and Long and Short Sleeve T-shirt. Only 60 tote bags were produced and 60 shirts.
This collab is launching Thursday Night, Feb. 11th at the LA ART BOOK FAIR Preview Event at the Moca Geffen. It’s launching at both the &Pens booth and Nat’s own booth.
This collab will also be available when The Quiet Life takes over the Juxtpoz Newsstand on Friday, Feb 13th from 3-6pm
Nathaniel Russell was born and raised in Indiana. He attended Ball State University and graduated with a BFA in Printmaking. After college, Russell spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area making posters, record covers, and woodcuts. He returned to his home city of Indianapolis and now spends his time creating drawings, paintings, fake fliers, bad sculptures, wood cut-outs, and music. Russell’s work is regularly shown around the world in both traditional galleries and informal spaces, usually surrounded by an expanding list of friends, collaborators, and like-minded folk. He frequently returns to his second home of California to work with friends on projects as varied as murals, print workshops, and backyard musical performances.
We’re proudly dropping two collaborations this week for the L.A. ART BOOK FAIR at the MOCA Geffen Museum in Downtown Los Angeles.

The first collab is with Juxtapoz Magazine and Printed Matter, Inc.
Longtime QL contributor, Cody Hudson, whipped this up ‘zine’ inspired illustration for us.
Printed Matter is an amazing group that does many things, including running the LA ART BOOK FAR. Juxtapoz is the best Art Magazine around.
This exclusive project was limited to 60 units and comes in Long and Short Sleeve T-shirts.
It’s launching on Friday at the Juxtapoz ‘Pop Up’ Newsstand kiosk that will be set up outside in front of the Moca. Launching at 3pm on Friday, Feb 12th, 2016
