“Last June, a friend called me saying that Robert Downey Jr. and the production team wanted to use a painting that I did in the next Iron Man film. This was the piece, my Morton Salt Girl with a massive bomb falling down on her. The original had been sold for a while– and was much too small anyways– so I recreated it to their size specification of 5ft wide and 13ft tall.
Along with When It Rains It Pours they asked me if I’d be interested in doing more work for the Mandarin’s lair a few months later when they were shooting in Miami. I of course said yes and ended up doing 13 more massive paintings and some set design for them along with the Iron Man mask which was a design they asked me to do for the wrap of the film last year. They made shirts and postcards for the set department with that image. So it doesn’t appear in the film but was part of the project.” – Bask
