Honestly, at first I was skeptical as heck, but now I'm really loving the new deviantART! Could you guys do one where it's all decked with the quote 'Bleed and Breed Art'? Thanks :)

art GEAR you say?  worked as a machinist you would not believe the large to tiny polished gears,mechanisems , links, fly weight inside machinery. Taking apart an engine timing gear stack is art like its self,, You remember the mad professor that use gear, and toggels and pullys and more GEARs to do something like break an egg or open the front gate of his home?  Just a thought, it could be quite interesting and it can be made from only imagation and ability and just look like wow! wtf.

Treehouse, as in the children's television channel...? I've been out of the loop for awhile. Not my vote anyway, unless it's Miss Spider's sunny patch friends. bounce rocks! Apart from being a bed bug, that is ):
I really like the idea of insects.
SteamPunk-Insects would be cool, but maybe have insects in split into two sub categories for that and include Conceptual-Insects and there is the contrast everyone loves to see. For the ones who want to take it an extra mile, Conceptual-Insects vs SteamPunk-Insects as a third sub category in case there is a major influx of the one vs the other.
:twocents: Always equals fun. :D

Inspirations from the poet and visionary, William Blake!

Examples:
The Tiger, TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry? .

Auguries of Innocence, To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

what about contrast and balance?
you cannot understand evil unless you have understood good;
just as you can never experience happiness if you have never experienced sadness or anger-there is a delicate balance in the world, and it is tied to the contrast between light and dark, up and down, past and future; and the very fine dividing line is the here and now of the present

I guess Steampunk is so popular because most people have a visual vocabulary in their heads of what this is, which is why there could very well be a lot of similar entries.
My guess would be guys n girls in the "usual" steampunk style outfits....rather boring if you ask me.
Then again, I'm not much of a steampunk fan to begin with.
