BIMI will help address this once widely adopted.
In the interim, if Mailgun were to allow image uploading let's not forget you'd need GMail to buy in to query them when an email is received from them. I'm not saying this isn't going to happen but I'd imagine it'd be very, very low on Google's to-do list!
Try creating a Gravatar account for your sending address... I'm not sure if GMail pulls in those images but I think it does. It'd certainly be more likely to process those than ever query Mailgun directly seeing as it's already the semi 'standard' way of associating an avatar with an email address.

@Tom: PostMark do offer the same service as Mailgun but I'm not suggesting you switch. It's more that they *also* have a service to process DMARC reports in addition to their mail sending capabilities. Kind of like Google have GMail and Maps but you can still be an Outlook.com email user and use Google Maps instead of whatever Microsoft's map offering is.
I don't see the need for Mailgun to enter the DMARC report processing space (unless they want to) as it's a completely different business to sending mailshots etc. Postmark just happen to be an outlier an that they do both.
