What cute lions are these?

Does anyone recognize these lion illustrations as part of a larger series, or were they a one-off? I'm looking for a reference image I can use to decorate my daughter's birthday cake. These are so cute, and almost perfect, but I'd love to see more, if they exist. Other recommendations for cute female lion cub references are welcome, too. Thanks for your help!

They remind me of the Charmin bears.

Specifically, Mother's Day.

It reminds me of (it is not, but) Baby Einstein lions.

Do you like Dick Bruna? (Lousy pic but the library would be fruitful and he's a nice clean, easy-to-reproduce lion)

Best answer: That said, the artist's running a business, and needs to eat. Think about commissioning a custom illustration just for the cake.

Response by poster: Thank you for the fast find, zamboni, and for teaching me how to fish. No time for a commission this time, but I'll definitely order some of Nathalie's merchandise. That lion cub reminds me so much of my little girl.

Response by poster: Update: ended up being a rush job with only wax paper for piping. Even when I told her it was Lola Lion, she kept telling me thanks for her mousie cake. Mamma tried. :)
