REVIEWS:

"Four things really caught my attention in Rise Fall Repeat. The first is the brilliant graphic attention to detail and interplay between the photography and cut n paste text. The second is a piece titled “Waking Life” that is poetry in prose, revealing simple yet profound thoughts. The third is a photograph of sidewalk graffiti that poses the question “Instead of picking your poison, why don’t you choose a cure?” And the fourth is a heartfelt essay that calls into question rape culture and how such violence is still tolerated in our society. Rise Fall Repeat #2 embodies all of the qualities of an exceptional zine, a writer’s voice and vision liberated in print."

"Coming across Isidro Fox by chance, I am more than pleased, and in awe of his work. He writes with such passion and emotion, that when readers allow themselves to be filled with his words—one is torn apart. Every fiber of ones being in invested within the pages, ever sentence more relatable than the last. Fox has the ability to spill his guts onto a piece of paper, and make it beautiful. Painfully beautiful. The raw emotion within the poems, exerts, and photography can leave one breathless. Each page tells a story; each page defines the breath you lost. Boundless fury, and abhorrence are evident surrounded tiny glimmers of hope. You want to throw your fist into a wall, but something inside you screams you should go and proclaim love at the top of your lungs. Our generation is one with the power to corrupt and change the world, Fox is a writer with the key to getting people to listen."

"Each piece is dated, giving the effect of poignant dairy entries, and the photographs in the back they are set against in many ways follow the format of a scrapbook. The combination of the two weave a unapologetically honest account of the his life through both words and images in a very personal way, pulling the reader in so they can feel the impact of every emotion the writer himself did. His writing- simple, raw emotion from the soul set to paper- presents his scepticism and anger, coupled with a love for those around him that are hurt every day and do not receive their due justice. It this love that drives him to seek to defend himself and those he loves. Lamenting the world’s apathy at the many atrocities that are left unchecked, Fox nevertheless shows he maintains a fighting spirit that inspires others and offers hope."

CONTAINS:
Anecdotes, small poems, text messages I didn't want to erase, photography, and whatever I previously scribbled into my notebooks that I didn't want to lose; completely original.

Everything gives a first-hand account through a battle with depression, social-anxiety, and a battle to keep faith in people when friends and lovers seem to do nothing else but make certain insecurities justified. This one contains stories a lot more personal than in the first issue, and took a hell of a lot longer to make, but I am extremely excited about how it all turned out.

Price is to cover material.

Frequently asked questions about foxalive

For patches, to avoid fraying of edges, please sew edges tight.
For BLACK shirts, please machine wash cold inside-out for prolonged life of designs.
As of May 2016, I use Canvas. For people unfamiliar with cloth patches, this is a durable fabric, but is subject to fraying with improper cutting and repeated washes depending on application.
No, it's not. And the reason it costs so much is because Etsy/PayPal fees associated with each sale. As well as this price range keeping the amount of orders down far enough to wear a single operator can actually handle it while going to school/work full-time.
Shipping is priced to include both Etsy fees as well as handling/packaging. I've tried to make it cheaper for people who only order one patch, but still have to include tracking information for orders with more than 3 SMALL patches. There is still an option for TRACKING to be included with your order if you want it.
If a patch I make is sold out, I either haven't had the time to renew the listing, or stopped making it because it is not an original piece and the artist/band could not be contacted for permission. And I don't like going behind artists backs for a buck, especially if they're still active and selling their own merch to continue doing what they do.
Processing times not only reflect order volume and distance, but also personal circumstances.

As stated numerous times through-out the shop, FoxAlive is a solo operation run by ONE PERSON - not a collective - in over his head. Apart from the distro, I also work 48-96 hour weeks at my main job, go to school full-time, and happen to be a human being with dreams and goals beyond making patches and shirts.

I try to have stuff out asap, but considering I also deal with on/off depression, and wrist problems, I can only dedicate so much time to FoxAlive before my wrist burns out or I start feeling like I only exist to serve capitalism. So the X amount of weeks in processing time isn't meant to keep me lazy as it is to keep Fox, well, alive.
All design sizes are final. Unless you want to pay $50 for a custom order.
Yes, of course! I actually have a couple listings designated for shirts, patches, and buttons with step-by-step instructions on how to place an order. Please be aware, if you commit to an order, you are giving me a 30 dollar non-refundable deposit for my time in designing and/or prepping a screen for your custom order.
