TEEN ANGELS MAGAZINE was started in 1981 by TEEN ANGEL. The magazine was a collection of stories, articles, pictures, artworks, and poems from around the southwest. It was all uncensored and anybody was able to submit. It included a lot of life in the varrio. Chicanos and others from lower class neighborhoods we’re very attracted to the magazine and submitted heavily. Later prison artwork and letters were included. The magazine never discriminated, and continued to thrive especially in the late 80s and early 90s. In 1996 Johnny “Smiley Holland took over as owner and editor, and in 2013 Richard Castor took over as Editor, and continued the vision of TEEN ANGEL. TEEN ANGEL was an artist out of San Jose, CA. He was heavily in the lowrider community, doing artwork for clubs and businesses. He did many murals, and later worked for Lowrider Magazine, at it’s beginning. He started TEEN ANGELS MAGAZINE, and continued his artwork in and out of the magazine. Even after selling the magazine to his son. He continued artwork and became a staple in the lowrider community. RICHARD CASTOR is an artist out of La Puente, CA. In 2001 he moved to San Bernardino, and met with Travieso and Payaso of TEEN ANGELS, through them he later he would meet Smiley. After working with them for years, in 2013 it was decided that Travieso and Rich would be in charge of the magazine. Rich with his background in art and graphic design and not to mention knowledge of the magazine and it’s lifestyle would ran with it. He created the next 3 issues and brought the name of TEEN ANGELS MAGAZINE back alive.
