Andy "Cosmo Joe" Watkins was born in Milwaukee, WI. At the age of 27 he quit his job to pursue his dreams of creating art. At first he would paint pictures on street corners across the mid-west. His unique art and personality soon drew attention; he was even described as "mesmerizing" by the New York Times.
Watkins has painted thousands of paintings, has been in the top 25 in the world's largest art competition, Art Prize, has written dozens of songs, and has designed several games.
In 2013 he founded Studio 6d6 in Wisconsin. Through Studio 6d6 he has created several innovative products for the role-playing games industry.
