This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in October  of 2006 by Lynette Carrington:

Ruby Mazur’s artwork has graced the covers of 3,000+ albums.  His most well-known creation was the “mouth and tongue” logo that was created for The Rolling Stones for their ‘Tumblin’ Dice’ album. 

Somewhat of a child prodigy within the rock-and-roll records arena, Ruby Mazur was hired as Art Director of Paramount Records at the age of 21.  Shortly thereafter, he received a Grammy Award nomination for his design on the ‘Crowfoot’ album cover.  Just two years in to his career, Ruby opened his own creative design agencies in New York, Los Angeles and London and worked with all of the top record companies including EMI, Warner Brothers, Atlantic, Paramount, MCA, Pye and ABC.  Eventually, ABC Records bought Mazur’s studio and brought him in as Creative Director. 

Ruby Mazur has designed album covers for Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Jim Croce, B.B. King, Elton John, Ray Charles and The Rolling Stones, among countless others.  Additionally, Ruby designed the album covers for the soundtracks of ‘Love Story’, ‘Rocky Horror’ and the original, ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’.

Today, Ruby Mazur specializes in commissioned portraits of pets and people as well as business logos and other graphics.  He also recently created a whimsical series of paintings featuring celebrities morphed into exotic animals.
