Even if you are not into art, there's a good chance you've seen the work of the late Keith Haring.  I don't know what you would call it ...  Grafitti?  Pop art?  Street Art?  To me it really doesn't matter since there's something charming and uplifting in the simple, almost child-like Christmas themed cover he provided for this 1987 charity album intended for the Special Olympics.

There's a ton of Haring information on the web.  A good place to start is the Wikipedia link on the artist:
