Anybody know if the Iron Man print that Tony hangs up in the movie at one point is just a one-off prop or if it was a commissioned piece that might see an eventual general release? Granted I figure it would be out by now if it were, but figured it'd be worth asking here. I have seen the Stout's but I'm more interested in the one from the movie itself. Thanks.

Shepard Fairey Art in Iron Man 2?

I have received several inquiries about whether or not I was involved in a piece of art seen in Iron Man 2. I’m friends with the Iron Man movie’s production designer Michael Riva who, along with his wife Wendy, was a big Obama supporter. He asked if I’d mind a HOPE poster spoof in Iron Man and I said “of course not”. I did not personally design the image, nor was I paid for it. All of the Obama HOPE spoofs, positive or negative, are a reminder of the power and importance of grassroots activism to affect things. Additionally, neither is it possible to copyright a style, nor would I want to restrict visual dialog by discouraging others from paying tribute to styles I have used.

Thank you. I looked all over the net and on here as a gneral search but did not think to go to the Fairey site (no idea why not), even though the first thing I thought of during the movie was "Fairey!"

I still want one...somehow...

Thanks again.
