A note from Sara Noyes of Tyrus Treasures:
“I started out like every other little girl. I would pop in my Sailormoon VHS and pause it on parts I wanted to draw. I was always drawing and as I grew older I started creating stories for the random characters I drew. Then, I fell in love with writing. I’m currently writing my first high fantasy series “Guardians”. All of the characters in my prints are from my story.
My grandmother told me that the strongest thing in the whole world is belief in yourself and what you are capable of. So, never give up and keep doing what you love to do most. It will never become work!”
I grew up in a house full of books and handcrafted objects. My mother painted, sewed, did silversmithing, read, did needlework and was a children’s librarian. My father taught theatre and acted in and directed shows. Being around all that creativity I was bound to soak some of it up and Figments is the result.
Steampunk is a passion of mine. I grew up reading Verne and I love to figure out how things work. I got to be a part of the etsy Steamteam table at Steampowered, the first all Steampunk convention in the U.S. and have been going strong since then. I attend and sell at Steampunk conventions in the Texas and Oklahoma area these days, though I have been known to range farther afield on occasion.
I make many of my own Steampunk costume pieces, as well as props and accessories and I also find and sell wonderful pieces that someone else might find useful in their costumes and creations.

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.
