MMA Fighter Scott Jorgenson

My husband was playing the new UFC 3 Undefeated game on XBOX360 when we saw one of the fighters, Scott Jorgenson in the game. It was obvious immediately that he has Vitiligo. I thought this was awesome! That both UFC & THQ portrayed this fighter as he is in reality. You can check him out here and see the vit.I think I may have a new favorite fighter. Definitely someone to follow. I know it is extra special and a boost when we as a community see a celebirty or athlete with vit.

I also wanted to share that Scott Jorgenson is reportedly going to do a video with Krizz Kaliko who also has
vitiligo. You can read more about this here

First Painting In Series

Okay Here is the painting. I left it faceless to show
that it can affect anyone. I didn't want to make it a man or woman in the painting.
This one is suppose to be Caucasian but I hope to do more paintings with each one
featuring a different race on the skin.
I know its rough but then again we all know Vit isn't perfect at all so I think
it kinda fits. What do you all think?

Painting Series

I'm starting a series of abstract paintings featuring Vitlilgo.
While not wonderful, I think the paintings will be good.
Each painting will feature a different skin tone/color and
Vitiligo on the skin. Being that it takes different patterns and
affects all races, I am doing this to showcase how it affects everyone.

The first painting is drying now. Once it is all dry, I'll get a good photo
of it & post it on here.
