Synopsis: George Rodrigue was born in New Iberia, in the heart of French Louisiana. During the mid-1980s, inspired by his beloved dog Tiffany, Rodrigue transformed the image of the original Cajun werewolf dog - the loup-garou - into what would become an international pop icon named Blue Dog. Over the years Blue Dog has captured the hearts of US presidents, Hollywood stars and ordinary people alike. This monograph of Rodrigue's work details the development of each of his artistic series from beginning to end, describing the ways in which one series leads to the next through Rogrigue's distinctive treatment of design, colour and shape. Although the main text ends with the latest "Blue Dog" series paintings, an afterword allows a glimpse of the artist's "Hurricanes" series.
