Our Story

All around us, our favorite squatches, trolls and ogres alike are made out to be mean, hairy and downright scary. But that’s just not the case. At No Coast Creature, we’re setting the record straight by creating a place where “different” isn’t frightening, but instead is welcomed and celebrated. Misunderstood monsters everywhere need a place to call home, and they’ve found it at No Coast Creature. We would know. Our designer, Micah Barta, discovered a kindred spirit with out-of-place creatures. A transplant from the sunny shores of Hawaii, he found a happy home with no familiar face or coast in sight, right here in the heart of Kansas City. Throughout KC, his monster friends are taking refuge among our greatest landmarks and neighborhoods. Each one is finding a cozy, Midwestern home and newfound purpose to go with it.


Our Products

Each one-of-a-kind creature is illustrated by hand and carefully crafted by designer and KC resident, Micah Barta. We use a small, local screen printing shop here in Kansas City for all of our printing needs. This ensures that all of our children's shirts and art prints are locally designed, locally printed and locally loved.
