We’ve tried—goodness knows, we’ve tried—to do everything to keep Cartoon Brew a Miley Cyrus-free zone, but she’s managed to wreck her way onto our blog after yesterday’s announcement that she was collaborating with Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.

“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.”

No word yet on how John’s artwork will be used, but it’s his most high profile gig since The Simpsons intro he created in 2011. John has a long history of working with musicians including the Rolling Stones, Björk, Tenacious D, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

During Cyrus’s press conference, she said that the two of them had become friends over a dinner where John sketched her for two hours. Here are some of John’s earlier drawings of Miley that he’s posted on his blog:
