I think anyone visiting my blog would definitely encounter photos of Atsushi Sakurai, especially since you can’t actually miss it, photos of Acchan being the background for my blog!
That I am a total fan girl of B-T and Atsushi Sakurai goes without saying. I love their music, the mad genius of Imai Hisashi, lead guitar, primary composer and backup vocals, Hidehiko Hoshino, 2nd guitar, composer and back up vocals as well as Higuchi Yutaka, bass guitar and Yagami Toll, drums and especially front man, vocalist and primary lyricist of the band, Sakurai Atsushi.
Not only does Sakurai have the voice to totally captivate me, the deepest, richest liquid baritone ever but he also has the particular looks to completely ensnare me!
A lot of times, it is said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there are people who are born with that perfect symmetry of looks which adds up to good looks and then there are people who not only have the 2nd quality in abundance but also have that indefinable something that is charisma as well.
To me, Atsushi Sakurai has all that and more in limitless quantities and Dori Hartley’s renditions of Sakurai has captured that perfectly
Needless to say, I have purchased postcards , journals and poster from Hartleyworks depicting Sakurai and the quality of print of those works are awesome!
So, if you are a fan, you might want to check out Hartleyworks artworks of Atsushi Sakurai!
