Don't Let's Start EP

Mark Mazut is credited with having created the iconic cover art for the vinyl release of Don't Let's Start.

According to Barbara Lipp, the snowman actually came from an illustration in an educational children's book used by MacMillan Publishing, where she worked with John Flansburgh. Without permission, Flansburgh copied and modified the snowman and added the pile of burning money. The original artist was later notified of the use of the snowman, and, according to Lipp, she "thought it was very funny". In response, Flans has claimed that the snowman was in fact entirely the work of Mr. Mazut, but was inspired by the running snowman clip art from the Pink Album's lyric sheet.
