FBC Holdings Introduces Todd Wahnish and Aarting Collection

NEW YORK, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTCMARKETS: FBCD).  We are proud to announce the completion of negotiations and that Todd Wahnish has partnered up with FBC Holdings.  Todd Wahnish is a New York- based artist and designer of web apps, limited edition toys, and animation.

Todd began his career in traditional hand-drawn cel animation, creating and directing hundreds of animated works for television. His animations have appeared on MTV, BET, FUSE, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Nickelodeon, PBS, TNT, TBS, the WB, Spike TV, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Saturday Night Live among others. He has worked with many of the world's top brands, including Coach and Google.

His involvement in creating the music video "Thin Red Line" for the Grammy winning hip-hop group "The Roots" led to the first nationwide broadcast quality animation created entirely with Adobe Flash. This groundbreaking video, which originally aired on BET in mid 2000, helped open the door for the next generation of animated television and film. Adobe Flash is now the standard for creating traditional animation for TV throughout the world.  

In 2003, Todd began designing and producing limited edition vinyl toys. His first collaboration was with Hong Kong based Toy2R. Later he worked with Kid Robot on a series of prototypes for brands including the animated rock group the Gorillaz, legendary punk band The Misfits and Onitsuka Tiger.  

In 2010, Todd launched the Aarting Collection as a place to create the first community-based art brand. The Aarting Collection's first contest, "Blankie," received designer submissions from all over the world and, during the voting phase, received over 150,000 unique votes in its first two weeks. The votes were used to select the 12 winning designs included in the series, and Blankie is now available at boutiques in over 30 countries. 

Todd attended Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and holds a BFA in Painting from the Atlanta College of Art. Residencies include the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, NYSP.

Todd brings years of valuable experience in the toy industry to FBC Holdings. We are extremely excited about his work with the Aarting Collection at www.aartingcollection.com and the success that followed. The addition of Todd to FBC Holdings is just one more piece of the puzzle that is being put together to grow the company.

Steven Miller VP of Sales said of Todd Wahnish: "I am excited to welcome Todd aboard, he has been a constant source of industry insight. With his extensive background and constant drive to innovate, he will help develop a comprehensive plan to capitalize on the opportunities presented. Having worked with him in the designer toy industry I can vouch for his ability to create amazing results. Again, we are lucky to have him on board and look forward to great things."

"We feel that FBC is in its strongest position as a company to date, as many projects are nearing completion.  FBC has turned a corner and expects very strong growth in the coming months.  With the addition of Todd we can move forward and finalize our web application, which will be ready for public very soon," said Christopher LeClerc.

Our web application creates a place for artists to design, build, network, and develop their products.  By allowing both amateur and professional artists to create toys FBC has put itself in a position to capture both creativity and commerce going forward.  By targeting this 6 billion dollar a year industry we are putting ourselves into a revenue ready position.  Not only will artists be able to design and sell toys but other productions as well, like apparel, jewelry, fashion, etc.  This is truly an exciting time for us in the long journey of building a successful and profitable toy company.  Additionally we will enable artists to communicate with retailers and wholesalers, wholesalers to wholesalers, wholesalers to retailers, and retailers to retailers.
