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 content. It included a lot of life in the barrio. 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.

He created 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.
