Hey friends! I’m really excited to start selling prints. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long while now, and when a friend asked for a copy of my “Should I wash my hair today?” flowchart, that was just the nudge that I needed. I will have six to choose from (each pictured in above gif). You may be familiar with a few. Perhaps you remember this or this?
I’ll be selling them throughout the day on Friday on Instagram through an awesome new app called #imightneedthis.
Here’s what you do:
1. Sign in with #imightneed this. It’s really easy. You’ll just sign in and enter your bank/debit info.
2. Follow me on Instagram (@beckycmurphy).
3. When you see the item for sale in your feed, just hashtag #sold and you, my friend, are the proud owner of a new print.
Stay tuned for this Insta blitzkreig on Friday!
Prints are 8.5×11″ and $18 each.

Here are some goodies from my infamous fourth grade diary.
I improved a lot in the last 16 years. Looking forward to how my work looks when I’m 42.
I think my humor is a little more polished too. I’m less of a balloon person, but I get it. And if I’m going to be honest, I wouldn’t mind if chokers came back.
Do you still have access to your old art?
Are you or your friends running the Austin Marathon tomorrow?
I hope you find this scavenger hunt helpful during your quick jaunt around town.
I’ll be there too—but on the sidelines. We’ll be drinking mimosas and waving signs of encouragement with pals, for pals.
I posted this Instagram in December and it proved to be popular with the ladies. I decided to take it a step further and make it legible for the blog.
Good luck with your decision!

Last night I Skyped in to talk to my alma mater’s (Iowa State!) design club. It was fun! I’ve learned a lot these last few years and I was happy to share a bit of my journey with the gang. I’m thinking about posting a thing or two for design students. It’s like that Onion header that says, “Surgeon General Advises Being 19 Years Old With 100 Bucks In Your Pocket And Your Whole Life In Front Of You”. It’s scary not knowing what’s ahead for the first time in your life, but DANG, what an exciting place to be.
The other thing I should note is that I’d Rather Be Short was on the Five on Fox last night! To say I’m jolly about this news is a bit of an understatement. I’ll show it off when I can find a clip. For now, here’s my proof. What an honor.
Anywho, the reason I reeled you in in the first place: the bullet journal. Give it a try. I’m not going to explain it because this two-minute video I saw on Life Hacker will do a better job than I ever could. I started it immediately and haven’t looked back. It’s the best way to stay organized and plan your day while kicking post its to the curb.
Breathe deep, my friends. Organization is here.
I made this doodad into my new Twitter background. I like it!
I’ve been having fun with pattern play, as you can see below.
I’d like to eventually sell goods with said patterns (fear not, there are more!) I will keep you posted.
Where do you recommend printing on fabric, wallpaper, etc.? I’ve heard good things about Spoonflower. Do you know of anywhere else? Do recommend any certain product? In case you were wondering, WordPress has already awarded me the “Congratulations, This Is The Vaguest Request For Printing Advice Post of February of 2014″, so I at least have that.

I try to keep my sketchbook on hand at all times. I’m always learning and always drawing.
Little purses may suit me proportionally, but if they can’t hold my sketchbook, they can find the door out.
Paper (I like Moleskines, but I don’t swear by them like other designers do), pen (V5 or Micron) and friends (friends + wine and baked brie.)
That’s all you need.
