You all are so good, I've been waiting to get it down a bit before posting...
I finally started to get microfoam on a consistent enough basis to be able to practice the basics. Finally worked up the courage to show some friends (yes, I have very patient coffee-loving friends) and looked at the art upside down when serving them the latte, which gave me an idea.
If you're not a linux nerd, Tux the Penguin is the mascot (of sorts...) which was my inspiration here.
This was my first attempt -- a single pour except for the right foot (which you can tell). Unfortunately it was beginners luck... I've not poured one as nice since. Something to work toward though!!
