The Island Kickstarter Hot Wash

Pensacon Hotwash – Take 2

By |2017-03-07T15:55:30-06:00March 6th, 2015|Hot Washes|

I realized today that the hotwash I posted yesterday wasn’t really a hotwash. It was more a lovely picture-based summary. The hotwashes you crazy kids have come to expect should have lessons learned and all that fun stuff.
