Firle was one of the first residents of the Drugstore Studios. The Drugstore is a communal and collaborative studio space for artists located in Kansas City's historic Katz Drugstore. From 2013 to 2015, Firle was able to create work for his solo show titled Selfsies. During this time he also created a body of work for the Leopold Gallery and began to experiment with circular, triangular and oval shaped panels.
The objective of The Drugstore is to provide artists with affordable studio space, while connecting them with their peers and the neighborhood in which they work. The Drugstore also houses a gallery space in which residents and local organizations host occasional events.
