Miley Cyrus Teaming Up With ‘Ren & Stimpy’ Creator John Kricfalusi For Tour Art

Here’s something weird for you: Miley Cyrus and John Kricfalusi, the animator and Ren & Stimpy creator often goes by John K., are pals. They apparently met a while back over a dinner in which Kricfalusi drew stuff for her for more than two hours.

Now, Kricfalusi is serving as a vaguely defined artistic director for Cyrus’ tour in support of her album Bangerz, which starts up next month. I told you it was weird.

Here’s how Cartoon Brew describes their partnership:

“His art is driving a lot of the tour,” Cyrus said of her upcoming “Bangerz” tour which kicks off next month. “Our whole tour is literally based on animals,” and will include “imaginative animals [John K has] made on his own.”

Kricfalusi has worked with a number of musicians over the years, directing music videos for Björk, Tenacious D, “Weird” Al Yankovic, and the Rolling Stones. He has a blog that he regularly updates, but other than a 2011 couch gag on The Simpsons, some Adult Swim commercial bumpers and a few other projects, he has seemingly kept a fairly low animation profile of late. IDW re-released the artist’s early Spumco comic book last February, however.

Miley Cyrus has had quite the opposite of a low profile over the past year. It’ll be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
