Big Nate Career
Peirce first started development on Big Nate in 1991, and it started as his best known comic. Big Nate is mainly about Nate Wright's life at P.S. 38, his adventures with his pals Francis Pope and Teddy Ortiz, and his troubles with his rivals such as Mrs. Godfrey, Gina Hemphill-Toms, Randy Betancourt, and several others. When drawing, he starts with a rough sketch using a fine point pen. When making the finished artwork, he uses a smooth paper called bristol board and sketches the entire drawing with a non-photo blue pencil. He uses a pen called pigment liners, and after inking everything once, he goes over everything again with a thinner pen to smooth it out. The comic has eventually evolved into novels and comic books that have been a success. Peirce has also created an island called Big Nate Island on the popular online game, Poptropica.
