Spin has an excerpt from the new Dinosaur Jr. oral history/photo book. Here Lou and J talk about the artwork on their first LP:

Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr. bassist):
The cover is by Maura Jasper, who’d met J [Mascis] at U-Mass, and was one of those totally cool punk rock girls hanging out with him, she was part of the crew. J came up with the idea for the first record, “I want a guy standing in a field.” He had a bizarre relationship with this little kid at U-Mass called Artie, they’d formed a weird bond, with J treating him like a whipping boy, and Artie lapped it up and seemed totally bewildered by J’s fascination with him. J wanted Artie’s face on the cover so he took a photo of him and put it there in the corner.

J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr. singer/guitarist): Artie didn’t have too many friends. I met him at college and we would hang out and I’d bring him to some parties. Lou’s view makes it seem like it was a little more cynical, but I was just hanging out with this guy, a fellow freshman who I thought was interesting.
