Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
In Memory of Georges Wolinski
This Mini Theme-Set contains:
- Georges Wolinski himself, as an elder sim
- Some Bodyshop items - greying stubble, a chin mask and more
- 5 cute cartoony paintings
Georges Wolinski was a French cartoonist and comics writer. He was killed on January 7, 2015, in a terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo along with other staff.
Google puts it in a way that gives more importance to his death than his life, lol. He indeed died unfairly, a couple weeks ago, at age 80, along with a dozen other harmless people who were just doing their job.
Wolinski didn't only work for the Charlie Hebdo though, he published many of his own cartoon books too. I've been reading them since I was 18, if not younger. They contain a lot of vitriolic humor. I am talking about low, mean jokes. Sketchy little drawings with a sloppy feel, men vs women humor, and adult cartoon stuff. Good stuff. Funny stuff. Wolinski's art is absurd, cocky and extremely funny.
My purpose here is not to give away all of his work for your Sims 2 game. That would be difficult, he worked with 40 different newspapers and magazines along his life. He really made a lot of material, which I would prefer you discover for yourself. I am giving you just a small sample so you might get the spark and search for more for yourself later.

List of Cartoon Books (FRENCH)
I won't link you too much. You can look him up online. Georges Wolinski, cartoons.
I also suggest you to go to your local library or book store and look him up there... only if you are 18 or older ! Even if you don't understand french, most of his drawings speak for themselves.
Georges Wolinski himself, as an elder sim
Because I can revive him here, at least.
If you decide to not use the glasses, I suggest you remove my pockets-under-eyes (costume make up) from his face. Glasses sometimes add a shadow around that area, so with glasses it's fine, but without glasses it looks a bit too dark.
Many thanks to the Moderators Karen Lorraine and justJones, and many more thanks to CaliBrat, marka93 and Zarathustra at the Creators Feedback Forum for the help!
I had tears when I finished the sim. Wolinski should be up and alive and doing his everyday stuff, like this sim will. People suck.
Georges Wolinski was 80 years old, talking with coworkers at Charlie Hebdo's, when his life got abruptly taken away from him (and their life taken away from all of them, journalists and artists mostly). I made him an elder sim. If Photoshop or could let me undo that terrible day, I would do it, and his life would just go on like it was.
If you want him to have the Artist University career, or another cartoon-related or art-related custom career that doesn't suck (like most elder careers do), make Wolinski the sim as an adult, get the job while he is an adult, then you can turn him back to elder age if you prefer (I prefer).
Everything you see on the sim is included, no mesh or anything else needed,
except maybe for the glasses. Sometimes you pack a sim and accessory meshes just don't follow. From what Google image tells me, Wolinski didn't always wear his glasses, so, it's your call.

All the artworks used as textures are by Georges Wolinski, at the exception of one painting based on Cabu's art. Cabu is another victim of the events in Paris.
Bodyshop goodies - For old and semi-old sims only!
Because maybe they are usable by other sims?
Look at the pictures below. There's 4 items in that kit:
- His stubble
- His skin condition
- His stubble with the skin condition
- His chin mask
All the stuff available only for sim males, adults and elders. 3 first items are in Stubble, the chin mask is in Costume Make up.
All made by me.
The 5 Cute Cartoony Paintings
EP REQUIRED: Nightlife
- 4 paintings behind 'Pineapple' - Cartoon art by Georges Wolinski
- 1 painting behind 'Two Dogs and An Olive' - Cartoon art by Cabu (co-worker of Wolinski, and another victim of the events in Paris)
It's not much, but you can decorate your sim houses with this! Unfortunately not your real houses...
French text on the first one (Gifle) :
Man in the blue and white striped shirt says Won't you do a little something for me?
Woman responds What about a slap in the face?
French text on the second one (Ouvriere) :
Title says There's nothing too good for the working class.
French text on the third one (Diminue) :
Woman holding the little guy says I hate being belittled!
The woman refers to how Wolinski depicts and treats women in his cartoons. He is... not kind. The little guy in the third painting is Wolinski drawn by himself. He's in many of his own cartoons.
This one is by Cabu
One more picture!
I was not sure about this one since it's a bit kinky. But moderators said yes!
Vous en etes encore la, vous? means 'Is this where you're still at?', in the sense of someone offering a clear opportunity that another person doesn't take (yet) because they are hesitating or are overly polite.
All the cartoons are by Georges Wolinski, at the exception of one based on Cabu's art.
