At risk of pointing out the obvious, the visual conceit here was to try to make the text reminiscent of owl pellets by putting them in an environment frequented by owls (the Norway spruce plantation at the head of the hollow) and giving them heavy drop-shadowing, like the layer of hair encasing the vomited-up bones. I experimented with making the letters paler, like bones, but it just wasn’t legible.
