The first time I realize that there is actually a Latte art was when I watched this local TV series about the life of a barista. It was awesome and still is. Just wondering, is there a professional course for this or you just have to learn the rope by yourself?
My personal goal on learning this if so I can make one for my friends and they wouldn't dare to drink it just because they don't want to ruin the art. Wouldn't that be awesome.

Eliel, no its was free hand with a jug.
I have not been on the machine in a while and as it and the grinder are new the settings are forever changing and lately the the the creme on the espresso isn't fantastic and making the art hard, any suggestions would be great but i will get some for pictures up soon.

Well I am finally getting some art! Thanks to the tips and tricks I have learned from this forum. Here's what I made this morning with my Starbucks Sirena, Illy dark-roast whole beans (yes I know but I ran out of my local roasted espresso beans) and skim milk:
