Help me upgrade my latte art

meshane | Feb 13, 201403:15 PM

Here's my latte from this morning. It's not the best heart I've made but is somewhat typical of my current, limited skills. I'm wanting to try something new. What should I try next?

Edit: Feb 14th

I'm really looking for ideas on pour method latte art. The ideas given so far I think would be considered etched. My reason for this, is that in my opinion poured latte art actually says a little bit about the taste one can expect from the latte. It can be an indicator that the barista got a decent crema in the espresso pull, meaning fresh roasted beans, correct grind, correct tamping etc. It's also an indicator that the milk is frothed correctly, meaning not too foamy and not too watery. For my own latte making it means to me that I'm on the right track.
