    Dag nabit! I was figuring it would be some cubist guy. Ha, sorry. Guess my lack of art knowledge was summed up with that sentence!

    Mondrian? I would only have got that if you gave me all eight letters in order.

    Ha hah – Thanks for starting my day with an involuntary snort laugh!

    Aww, he looks like he’s made out of construction paper – cute!
    As per yesterday – did you really spend time on all those dots or were you pulling my leg?

    And the winner is: breezyandgrizzly!!

    and the whole Lost Bear community celebrates

    You’ve derailed the Tame train, but I’m sure he’ll take it with good graces. Hopefully, all those wins haven’t gone to his head.

    Gratuliere! as we Germans say.

    I thought the lobster looked a bit Klee-ish, but he was clean shaven.

    Thank you, Lisa, you are very kind – for, as you can see, straight lines are not my forte!
    No, I was not pulling your leg – I really did spend an entire afternoon adding each dot of my Pointillism lobster, one at a time.
    It’s lucky for me that I do not have a real job!

    Attention Lost Bears,
    We are down to the final two days of the Great Lobsters In Art contest – to win a signed copy of one of my books, you need to be the first person to correctly identify tomorrow’s Art Lobster.
    The best clue for this upcoming Lobster Artist really comes down to the infinitely curious question of perspective. And yes, once again, facial hair is involved, though, unhappily, so are skin infections …
    Good luck!

    I can now see a bit of Klee in there as well, dammit!

    Congratulations, BreezyandGrizzly – your obsession has paid off – you are our Mondrian Lobster winner!!!
    Those were tough clues, and I knew it would take something special to dethrone Detective Tame, and thus end the longest winning streak in the glorious history of The Lost Bear.
    I am happy to announce that you have won a signed copy of any of my books. Feel free to go to, or my own website,, and browse the modest Bradley Trevor Greive oeuvre at your leisure, then send an email to me, via, and let me know which book you’d like, and also your preferred delivery/postal address (please include country, state, zip code, and a contact phone number for delivery).
    Also, as part of the prize, I will attempt to draw your favourite animal in the flyleaf – so please let me know what that curious species might be (a grizzly bear, perhaps?).
    As I mentioned to our previous winners, Tame, Flash and G-Rabbit, I’m very happy for people to win more than once, so please feel free to enter my bizarre little contest again in the remaining two days. I’ll be sending out all the winners’ prizes after the Art Lobster series ends – so there is still time for me to slip a second, third (or fourth) signed book into a particularly skillful sleuth’s package.
    Hopefully, all being well, you’ll have your package in your paws well before Christmas, no matter where you are in the world.
    Once again – Congratulations, B&G!
    And thank you for participating in The Lost Bear Art Lobster contest with such verve.

    The first artist that came into my head yesterday was Klee, then Vasarely, but I could not really connect them with Chekhov and Proust.

    Outstanding BREEZY. In my mind, this was by far the toughest of all of the puzzles and you nailed it. Navy Bean stated it best above with his needing all of the letters to get this one. This was a real brain scrambler and you should revel in your success. (and as you put it yesterday, your obsession) You can now revert back to old “covered in kittens and petunias” self…at least until the head lobster wrangler, BTG, posts his new clue(s) for today and then transform youself back into the obsessed, possessed slavering creature who must, at all costs come up with the right answer.

    Boy I asked for that one, Gaijinrabbit. But thank God for Google translator. Understood and hoping you have a good day.

    Without even seeing the clue I predict tomorrow’s answer is: Bob Ross.
