heres a link to some i did a few years ago that someone popped on Flickr..
I learnt in TA cups, like any different shaped cups, its just a matter of mastering your milk first, then trying different techniques to pour.
Yes pouring down the side of the cup can work, altho, i find sometimes washes out the crema a bit more.. but can do cleaner art.
I usually pour into the centre of the cup and move around to retain the crema til nearer the top of the cup then pour the art.
