Amber Hawk Swanson Interviews Matt Krivicke, Sinthetics

I am delighted to once again work with Matt Krivicke, Sculptor of the super realistic, fully articulated life size silicone manikin makers, Sinthetics. Matt created Amber Doll in 2007 (he sculpted the face and did finish details on Amber Doll, who was made by RealDoll) and has since become a good friend. I had the chance to sit down with him to discuss his work and its parallels with my own after a recent Tilikum transformation planning session in Los Angeles (October, 2011).
