Latte Art Tulip Crazy

Here's a collage of 13 latte art tulips I poured over the past week.  I've been having fun working on my technique with these, often trying to start with a rosetta-ish wave that ends up framing the tulip.  The other things I try to focus on are "pushing" each layer into the next to place them appropriately, and making sure that each layer of textured milk first gets dropped into darker, undisturbed espresso crema so that it ends up with great definition.

UPS logo

This morning a group of people came into the restaurant for breakfast and I noticed that they were wearing airline pilot's wings that said "UPS" on their jackets.  After they made some random comment about "always being surrounded by brown", I knew they definitely were a UPS flight crew.  So I of course couldn't resist the urge to do some logo latte art etching for them!

Kung Fu Panda

Yesterday someone helped me out of my creative downturn and suggested Po from Kung Fu Panda on the Latte Art Requests page.  I tried it out this morning and would have spent more time on better detail, but we had a busy breakfast crowd at ESS.  Here he is!

Tulip Season

I have to admit, I haven't really done a lot of latte art etching lately because I've been focusing so much on practicing my free-pour latte art.  But if you give me some suggestions on the Latte Art Requests page, I'd be more willing to post some new designs!  Here are some fun tulips I did today:
