Ha!

What if 'they' didn't have a clown's head to give you ????????? :).

What about flowcharts, drop shadows on irregular shaped objects, screen
capture manipulation etc.

The clown's head, as with the rest, just indicates the ability level.

And yes! I most certainly would give an illustrator an essay test. This
would tell me whether I could rely on the illustrator to have correct
grammar in the graphics.

It would also show whether they were able to perform other tasks and
therefore be capable of career advancement etc etc.

My reaction to this would be, "Give me a clip of a clowns head and I'll
put it in the text."

I'm a writer, not an illustrator.

Would you give an illustrator an essay test?
