«this is amazing!»
From the civil rights movement, to the explosion of boulevard cruising, to the legendary invention of Homies figurines, the ss were arguably the golden age of Chicano culture. During that time, dozens of Chicano-centric magazines were also launched, creating a way for Chicanos to celebrate what had quickly become a distinct and dominate sub-culture of Mexican American culture. In addition, it also featured various contests and was known for being active in the local community. Mi Vida Loca Magazine was a San Francisco-based magazine that printed art, writings, photos, and interviews with different barrios across California with the goal of creating unity. In many ways, it became the northern equivalent to the better known Teen Angels. Subculture Magazine was a bi-monthly magazine dedicated to Latino culture, music, and lifestyle.

The Forgotten History of Teen Angels, the Cult Underground Zine That Documented Cholo Culture
When Lowrider Magazine hit stands in , David De Baca was a seventh-grader coming up in San Diego's Chicano community, working on bikes and cars with his brothers. Before that, Latino car culture had little to no place in the mainstream. The magazine's popularity proved there was a demand for that type of publication. Meanwhile, an artist calling himself Teen Angel began working as a writer and illustrator for Lowrider , honing a style that shares DNA with Chicano prison art and tattoo design. But since Lowrider was focused mostly on cars, there was less real estate for the likes of politics, fashion, commentary and art. In Teen Angel decided to branch out with his own zine — Teen Angels — dedicated to cholo culture in full.

She immediately falls in love. Until the mids, when production of Teen Angels ceased, the magazine maintained a loyal, underground following among Chicanos who could finally see themselves reflected in print. In the s, the hallmarks of Chicano gang culture — tattoo sleeves, graffiti art, and the crisp khakis and colored bandanas of cholo wear — were often viewed as signifiers of crime and violence by police and society at large. Mainstream media marginalized Chicano voices, providing a one-dimensional portrait of barrios as violent and drug-ridden. Teen Angel, the artist behind the self-titled magazine, provided a counterpoint to this narrative by celebrating the artistic brilliance and originality of Chicano gang culture.
We had a successful weekend promoting to youngsters, and making veteranos reminisce about the good old days they spent with the magazine. People became followers once again, or for the first time. The hard work was paying off. Many close to him knew he was in his last days, but the news still came much too soon. Many are unaware of the impact and influence this one man had in the lowrider and the kustom communities, not to mention the people of the Varrios across the Southwest.
