About Sam: I have been a professional artist, illustrator, cartoonist, caricaturist, and now, wedding painter. For most of my 25 year career, I’ve had health insurance. At times this coverage was from my wife’s employer; at other times it was an individual policy, paid monthly by my hard scrabble scribblings. But there have been lapses in coverage over the years. The story in these four panels happened during a lapse many years ago. The debt still stalks me.
