Meet AMA-Con 2013 Steampunk Vendor Neo Genesis

Neo Genesis

Neo Genesis originates from Joseph Stalin’s plans to enslave Russia and kill off the Romanov family along with others (in 1917 the Russian Revolution). Captain Alexander and Lieutenant Roksana have both stolen the ship and have come across many of its present members across the world; and soon across time with the discovery of time travel from an unlikely visitor crash landing on the ship. Neo Genesis now travels through space and time looking for new adventures and seeking goals – Some of destroying some of progression.

Neo Genesis will be attending AMA-Con 2013 as vendors and supporters of Steampunk culture in the Amarillo area. Neo Genesis is also a part of Amarillo Steampunk which host many of the LARPing (Live Action Role Play) and RP (role-play) activities here in town.

A Note from Neo Genesis:
Thank you goes out to The Amarillo Public Libraries for allowing us to attend this year and we hope to see everyone at AMA-Con 2013!!!

Meet AMA-Con 2013 Artist Andrea Smotherman of Ink Fox Studios

Ink Fox Studios

Andrea Smotherman is a self taught artist for hire and has been drawing 14 years. Anime is what got her into drawing and she has just carried on all this time. She also does a little prop work and crafting (knitting, crocheting, sewing) so drawings and prints are not all she has to bring to the table. Ms. Smotherman’s art can be seen in several places, and she is always open for commissions of almost any kind.
