Čoh was born in Celje in 1956. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 1980 and has since worked as a free-lance artist.

(Socialisation of a Bull) with the artist Milan Erič.[4]

He won the Levstik Award twice, in 1988 for his illustrations in Račka Puhačka and Rastoče težave Jadrana Krta (The Fluffy Duckling and The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole) and in 1999 for his illustrations for the book children's folk limericks Enci benci na kamenci.[5]
