Chicago born cartoonist, Angel Contreras,

has entertained crowds with his wacky caricatures and illustrations since 1988. Birthday parties, Corporate events, picnics, bar and bat mitzvahs are just some of the venues Angel has had the pleasure of sharing his zaniness.

Angel’s heart, however has been illustrating for Clowns and Magicians all over the world. Since 1995 he has left his indelible mark on the Children's entertainment community with his winsome style and singular wit.

Angel has had the honor of instructing at several Clown/Magician training events since 1998. He has taught cartooning, and character development at the Midwest Clown Round-up, TNT Clown Retreats, Kidabra Conference, Fellowship of Christian Magician, Fellowship of Christian Clowns, Show-Me Clowns for Jesus, Comedy Magic Workshop, Circus Magic and Clownfest.There have been Angel sightings at WCA and COAI Conventions! With his alter ego, the incomparably insipid Paco, Angel has done his fair share of public entertainment.

Angel provides the children's entertainment community with skilled, professional and fun illustrations for self promotional use. He has developed clown focused merchandise such as stickers, tee-shirts, note cards, note pads and caps. Will his mind ever stop???

Beware his marker, he has one and is not afraid to use it!
