Kelvin creates each piece only in black and white, using graphite pencils, charcoal, and black coloured pencil. He's exhibited at numerous major art galleries and won several national awards for his remarkable work. His work is currently on display at the The Watercolours + Works on Paper Fair at the London Science Museum, until February 3.
Kelvin writes on his blog:
'I aspire to create art as vivid as eyes could see. I want my drawings to prompt an emotional response, making viewers feel as though they are looking at a real live subject. I’ve always been creative, but fell in love with using pencils in particular.
It amazed me, that with only one shade of lead, you can create so many tones and textures, and almost create the illusion of colour. It was only when my images started to create a buzz with other Middlesex University students that I realised their impact.'See more of his sketches after the cut...

All he wants is a woman he can spend the rest of his life with in peace, a woman who will give him children and no troubles and that woman is me. What's that supposed to mean? He doesn't love me?Well, he chose you, that must mean something, right? What do you guys think...

Read Charlyboy's tribute to Lady D below:
“ Like a flash of light, I’m startled at where we are today. The journey of marriage is always the higher you go, the tougher it becomes, but my journey with you in the past 30 years has been in the reverse; the higher we climb, the better, the easier it becomes. With all the mysteries, the enigma and the eccentric persona of the Charlyboy brand that has so tormented our lives; you are unswervingly glued to Mr. Oputa. You have never mixed up the two. You know your husband and your husband knows you.See more after the cut...
