D. Sinitskii, Soviet cartoonist?

Dear colleagues,

A research query for copyright purposes: I am searching for information on a Russian cartoonist/illustrator who worked in Uzbekistan in the 1950s by the name of D. Sinitskii. He drew cartoons for the newspaper Komsomolets Uzbekistana and illustrated books.  Are there any reference guides or other sources I could look at to find someone who was likely never famous?    Thank you!
