First Post-Brexit Economic Consequence In On-Line Store Closure?

Via a sharp-eyed Sean Kleefeld comes this post from Simon Gurr of Gurr Illustration about having to stop using Big Cartel as the basis for their on-line shop because of the current economic situation -- I'm guessing it's the value of the dollar against the British pound after the vote.

We talk a lot about international consequences in terms of free-speech type issues and various economic opportunities on hand for English-language work; we rarely discuss that there may be fewer opportunities if countries enact restrictive economic policies. It's something that bears watching. I don't know about you, but I've loved having the chance to see work from all over in recent years, and having that work routinely made available to me at a reasonable price point. We lose that, we lose a lot of what makes comics great right now.
