I have none to show but these guys are pretty whippy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhgZ9xbqwwU&NR=1

This is where you can really see the art and the technique.

Me too. How humbling.

I have not studied the techinque and never got more than a few flimsy looking ripples on my best efforts. I explain away to not making 40-50 lattes/day. Is it possible to excel at latte art when you're held to 1-2 tries/day? What does one need to focus on first - milk texture? C'mon, the Don - help out a rookie. How about holding a little workshop over here?

Milk texture is key.
