‘I was painting all the time – I never stopped’

Episode 5 – Jim Moir – AKA Vic Reeves – on his favourite sketches

Jim Moir, otherwise known as Vic Reeves, on the perils of the sea. And charcoal …

Best known for his comedy, Jim Moir’s twin passions are actually art and birds, which led to the Sky Arts show Painting Birds with Jim and Nancy Moir. His latest exhibition – ‘Comestibles Sir?’ – runs until 26 August at the Cornwall Contemporary Gallery. He talks to 200 Voices about getting his hands – and face – dirty for the RNLI.
