Welcome back Morgan!


The new season of Dexter is coming soon, and I've been looking forward to seeing it for a long time. Dexter Morgan the psycho path serial killer, who is disguised as a upstanding Miami citizen is also know as the mild-mannered Donut Guy at his office. In my opinion, he is one of the most fascinating characters we have come across in television in last several years. I really enjoy this show, especially when he is able to use his dead father's "codes" to maneuver himself skillfully out of suspicions way. I appreciate the shows unexpected stylistic qualities, in particular, the way Dexter's shifty eyes and uneasy expressions are doubled with a witty and clever narrative voice over. Not to mention, the opening sequence for each show is sheer genius, riddled with metaphor alluding to murder ad mayhem.

Do i see a line drawing of Dexter holding the box where he keeps his victims blood sample in that blood splatter.
Cool!

Thank you for the generous comments.

Christian : Actually, the box I drew is not the Dexter's wooden box. It's a donut box.^^ The line drawing part is supposed to look like his persona. Yet, I'm excited to hear from your different perspective. I didn't know it could look like that. Thanks.

Hi.

I came across this blog when I searched on DEXTER. It takes series from abroad a while to reach The Netherlands. I'm not a guy who tends to watch series but this is indeed intriguing and very well told without being bored after a few episodes.
I saw this very well drawn character. The charactirsation of his face and body are far better then I normally come across.
