I found the artist! I was on the right track, just needed to follow a couple more leads...

The artist is Kasai Hōsai 笠井 鳳斎, a student of Yoshitoshi in the 1880s. He was a somewhat prolific book illustrator from about 1896-1905.

See, for comparison, the signature on this frontispiece illustration from the novel "Fukumi giyū-den" 福見義勇伝 (1897):
