This Patreon exists so that Luke Ski (aka Luke Sienkowski) can make enough money allowing himself both to stay living in the Burbank / L.A. CA area so he can pursue his dream of continuing to work in the animation industry as a storyboard artist, writer, voice-over actor, or any position on a production he is qualified for, AND continue to follow his passion for creating comedy songs and music videos, often with a slant towards the nerdy geeky fandom pop-culture he loves so much, and whatever other projects involving art and/or comedy that strikes his muse. Any amount of money anyone can donate each week/month/whatever on a regular basis to help would be greatly appreciated. Here's more info about Luke Ski for the uninitiated, with links at the bottom...

At Dragon*Con 2004, Dr. Demento declared "the great Luke Ski" to be his radio/internet program's "Most Requested Artist of the 21st Century". Since then, Luke held onto that title by having songs on "The Dr. Demento Show's" annual year-end "Funny 25" countdown of his most requested songs of the year for 16 years in a row, including five of them at #1 ("Peter Parker" 2002, "Stealing Like A Hobbit" 2003, "Snoopy The Dogg" 2011, "Fake Adult" 2014, "Candybars" 2017). His song parodies, originals, stand-up and sketches about pop culture phenomena have made him a favorite performer at science-fiction and fandom conventions all across the Midwest and beyond. He's released 11 albums and 2 DVDs over the past 22 years, many of which feature collaborations and cameos by his fellow comedy musicians of the Funny Music Project (the FuMP dot com), most significantly Carrie Dahlby, who often sings lead vocals on Luke's parodies of female musicians.

He has won 3 awards at the Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards For Excellence In Comedy Music. The first for his Peanuts tribute, "Snoopy The Dogg", winning 'Outstanding Parody Song' of 2011; the second for his song about Disney buying Star Wars, "When You Wish Upon A Death Star", winning 'Outstanding Parody Song' of 2012; and the third "Candybars" winning 'Outstanding Parody Song' of 2017, about his and many people's struggle with weight loss in the face of so many delicious foods & restaurants in this modern world.

Luke Ski recently got his dream job for 3 years as a storyboarder, writer, & voice-over actor working on Cartoon Network's "Mighty MagiSwords" (created by Kyle A. Carrozza) from Mar. 2015 to Feb. 2018, on 20 web shorts and TV Seasons 1 & 2. Luke wants to continue to live his life long dream to work as a professional in the animation industry creating comedy for television, and is currently seeking a Storyboard Artist/Revisionist position on other shows, as well as getting more Voice-Acting work for animation. For "Mighty MagiSwords", he (with his partners) storyboarded on 27 episodes spanning the 2 seasons, including his brainchild episode "Gotta Get Grup To Get Down", which got the highest TV ratings of any episode of the show. He is also a member of SAG/AFTRA and got to be the voices of a handful of tertiary characters, including Skullivan the beleaguered Level-1 cave monster, Docky Boardman the hot-tempered old sailor man who runs the boardwalk pier, Cattus the One-Blade the nomadic zenned-out do-er of "great justice", Nyando the obnoxious cat kid of 'The Broccoli Dumpling Gang', and whole lot of background pirates, monsters, and disconcertingly odd-looking dogs.

Other creative comedy & art stuff Luke has done over the years includes but is not limited to:

  • Performing in Stage Plays and Musicals
  • Stand-Up Comedy - intermittently since the 90's
  • Improvisational Comedy - ComedySportz: training in Milwaukee, performer on the Kansas City team
  • Has a Bachelor Of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration from the 4-year fine arts college, the Kansas City Art Institute
  • MC / Host - been the on-stage host / master of ceremonies for comedy, music, and other events at fandom conventions
  • Podcaster - 3 different current shows
  • Sketch Comedy - intermittently since the 90's, released 3 albums as a part of the sketch comedy quartet "Cirque du So What?"
  • YouTube Channel - featuring music videos, puppet videos, animatics, commercials & such with Luke providing voices / vocals
  • Can do a dead-on impression of Gilbert Gottfried

Tiers
The "I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!" Tier
$1 or more per month 16 patrons
For one dollar or more, you get my assurance that you are an awesome human being, and I thank you wholeheartedly.
The "HA HA HA YEAH RIGHT" Tier
$3,600 or more per month 0 patrons
For $3,600 a month, I'd be willing to do a great many creative things to your specific liking. Also, I could mow your lawn and do other yard work, because offering that incentive in the past worked out really well for me.
Goals
$51 of $3,600 per month
This amount would cover my monthly living expenses, so all of my other income could go towards creating new comedy songs, videos, cartoons, storyboards, animatics, etc.
