Cats. Storefronts. Litter. That’s a lot of what you will find here. Lately the storefronts have been winning, but if cats, storefronts, or litter (yeah, right) are your bag there's a serious back catalog.

I have some Tumblr picture blogs which keep these themes separate:
Cats: Toby’s Blog
Storefronts: Portraits of Queen West
Litter: Brand Name Litter

I only post litter Mondays, although other stuff might show up on a Monday. I try to post cats on Fridays but they can show up any time. There’s never a bad time for cats.

Designer, artist, writer, whatever. Born in Minneapolis in the 60s, grew up in Saskatoon, and have lived in Toronto for nearly 30 years.

¶ I’ve been posting pictures online since 2001.

    Mashyguy says:

    "I've known Kevin for close to 25 years. I've known him to attack each medium that grab his interest with ferrocity; he has what I suspect to be an instinctual understanding of "the graphic" which he has applied brilliantly across his drawings, painting, videography, interface design AND photography.

    I approach Kevin's Parkdale/Toronto photos from two vantage points: He continues to capture the simple beauty in his neighborhood and his ability to simultaneously mock and praise the place continuously makes me smile.

    I also use these photos as a way back to a place I adore. There's a sentimentality in these images that gives one the opportunity to simply take a walk around; something I'd do often when I lived there... AND something I find myself doing on Kevin's page quite regularily."

    "Kevin is the eyes of Parkdale. And I'm not even going to say anything about his cat pictures because i don't have to."

    "I've been watching Kevin since before I found Flickr, and was delighted to find him here -- and then to find out what a great guy he is. Kevin owns my neighbourhood. Sometimes when I'm walking down the street, I say, "This is a Kevin Steele place." He also owns the only cats whose photographs I often actually look own."
