    Tom Russell often uses his own artwork for album covers. His most recent album is an example.

    Satan looks a little taken aback and cautious about these guys and they're not too fussed themselves.

    J Mascus does most, if not all, album cover art for Dinosaur, Jr. and all the album art for his solo releases.

    I'm pretty sure this one doesn't qualify. Discogs says the painting is by Margaret Belew. Furthermore, she doesn't appear to have contributed in anyway to the recording of the album.

    EDIT: I just realized the album cover appears to have been designed by Adrian Belew under a pseudonym. In which case, it DOES qualify!
