Isn’t it about 300 times easier to multiply using this (https://signalvnoise.com/archives2/thinking_diagonally_with_multiplication_grids.php) method?
Just look, here you can see numbers instead of shapes, and there is no room for error as everything is clearly drawn out and viable, unlike the tiny lines and crosses. I’m not even sure that the line method above even works, as I did not get a correct answer ever single time.
Hell, even just breaking up the numbers (22 into 20 and 2 then 12 into 10 and 2) and multiplying using the following method works.

Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time
Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”
All hail Satoshi Kon, my lord and savior
