Loch Ness MPLS, designed by Brian Ness, a Minnesota artist, houses an online portfolio, news, updates and personal blog.


Here's where I post a little about my life, my process, and my inspiration. Check in to learn about what's happening with Loch Ness MPLS, and get a sneak peek at new projects!


LochNessMPLS is 2 Years Old!

Brian Ness

Can you believe it's been 2 years already?

Thank you so much for following along as we try new things, have some fun, maybe make a mistake or two, but slowly build something we are really excited about! It means the world to us (and to me personally) that you all are following along, liking posts, and thinking of LochNessMPLS when you need a card or a gift!

We have so many plans and lots of really fun things in store, so this is only the start of it!

We have 3 big ways that we are celebrating our birthday!


No one can ignore the Adult Coloring craze! In fact, it's something that us LochNessMPLS folk frequently partake in! So it was long enough for us to wait on creating our own coloring pages! There are 3 currently available on the etsy site. For $1.50, you will receive a PDF of a coloring page, formatted to print on your home printer. You are able to print it as many times as possible!

We are starting with 3 designs: Flowers, Paul Bunyan and Babe, and, of course, IRIS! If you like them, there might be more in the future! Let us know your thoughts!


It's been a year since we launched our tastemaker series of plush celebrities, and we are excited to let you know that 6 new buddies will launch on the site on February 1st!

Can't hold the excitement? Well, follow us on instagram, and every day we will feature a little preview of each of the designs!


What's a birthday without gifts, right? Now, we would love to personally wrap a favor for each of you, but we still have those pesky day jobs that eat up our time, so how about a promo code?

From now through February 29th, you can celebrate our 2nd birthday with 22% off your entire purchase in the shop! At checkout, just enter promo code Happy2You!


Thanks again for all the love!
