+$This sketch group is anything but staid

+$Superheroes willing to sit for portraits are scarce. That's what Daniel Morris found. So he decided to set up an art group featuring the next best thing: circus performers.

+$The performers from Gravity Circus Centre are strong enough to hold unusual poses for long periods of time, for the benefit of the artists.

+$"This doesn’t happen sat alone behind a computer screen," Daniel says. "I was always a little envious of the huge art communities in places such as the US. They seem to often meet face-to-face and share their passion for art. I found it odd that, in London, people were content to communicate solely through forums.

+$"Maybe I'm being a little traditional, but I value the social aspect of art as much as developing my art, so I was keen to place a flag in the ground and say: let’s meet here."
