Oh My Cavalier is Julianna Swaney.

Drawing inspired by Eugene Schieffelin, who had ideas about importing and releasing all the birds mentioned in Shakespeare's works. In the 1890s he released some European starlings in Central Park; today starlings are considered one of the most invasive non-native species of bird.

Another story of an invasive species - read the abstract or the whole thing.

Below, two prints I picked up, also by Julianna Swaney. Nice bears in clothes. Or, bears in nice clothes. Or maybe ladies wearing the heads of bears. Or, ladies with the heads of bears. Here is her shop.
